approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Evangeline's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Evangeline Adams comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Evangeline Adams - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Evangeline Adams" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Evangeline a little better. This page describes the disguise Adams wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Evangeline Adams is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Evangeline tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Adams' way of dealing with problems.
Evangeline Adams may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Adams' emotional balance and well-being.
Evangeline Adams is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Evangeline Adams probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Adams' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Adams, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Adams' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Adams will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Evangeline Adams overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Adams' strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Evangeline through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Adams' more rational friends. Evangeline Adams certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Evangeline Adams has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Evangeline Adams to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Evangeline Adams has a friendly, affectionate attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm. Her attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about Evangeline, and is probably something she cares a great deal about. Adams gets along well with people and knows how to please them. Evangeline Adams has a well honed sense of style and beauty.
In significant ways, Adams' emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Evangeline Adams may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Evangeline Adams is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
She is very receptive to the influence of her environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use her. Evangeline Adams has the ability to tune into the events around her, but she also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
At times Evangeline Adams may feels that she is all alone in the world and that other people only cause difficulties for her. Constantly bounced to and fro by others, Evangeline has a strong desire to free herself from her stressful surroundings.
