approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Fanny's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Fanny Ardant comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Fanny Ardant - 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 Fanny Ardant" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Fanny a little better. This page describes the disguise Ardant wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Fanny Ardant appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Fanny has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Ardant tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Ardant.
Ardant approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Fanny Ardant is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Fanny's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Fanny and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Fanny Ardant empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Fanny Ardant is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Fanny Ardant communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Fanny never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
The effect of her childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Fanny learned while young, are clearly apparent in her demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises Fanny Ardant seems childish and needy. When she is in smoother waters, she appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
Fanny Ardant is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Fanny Ardant tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Fanny's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Fanny Ardant also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Ardant needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
