approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Frida's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Frida Kahlo comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frida Kahlo - 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 Frida Kahlo" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Frida a little better. This page describes the disguise Kahlo wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Frida Kahlo likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Kahlo must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Frida does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Frida Kahlo also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Kahlo will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Frida dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Kahlo admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Frida Kahlo befriends someone, Kahlo is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Frida expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Frida Kahlo often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Frida Kahlo has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Frida always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Frida Kahlo also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Frida more than anything else. Frida Kahlo feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Frida Kahlo has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Frida coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Frida Kahlo is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Kahlo seems to need others' approval first.
Frida has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Frida's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
