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 Lilly comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Evangeline Lilly - 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 Lilly" 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 Lilly wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Evangeline Lilly will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Evangeline has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Evangeline Lilly very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Lilly is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Evangeline Lilly will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Lilly's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Evangeline Lilly appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Lilly is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Evangeline possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Evangeline Lilly - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Evangeline Lilly does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Evangeline.
Others see Evangeline Lilly as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Lilly shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Evangeline Lilly usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Evangeline Lilly tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Evangeline does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Evangeline Lilly can get by in life almost on her personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Evangeline that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Lilly is around.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Evangeline Lilly makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Lilly. Evangeline Lilly appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
She is very receptive to the influence of her environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use her. Evangeline Lilly has the ability to tune into the events around her, but she also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
Evangeline Lilly seems to enjoy projecting a different image of herself to others, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
Lilly strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around her, Evangeline Lilly spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
