approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gelsey's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Gelsey Kirkland comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gelsey Kirkland - 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 Gelsey Kirkland" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gelsey a little better. This page describes the disguise Kirkland wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Gelsey Kirkland is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Kirkland sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Gelsey's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Gelsey Kirkland herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Gelsey Kirkland is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Gelsey Kirkland is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Kirkland probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Kirkland's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Gelsey Kirkland as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Gelsey does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Gelsey Kirkland is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Gelsey Kirkland is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Gelsey Kirkland needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Kirkland's work or outside social activities.
Gelsey Kirkland has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Gelsey will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Kirkland can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Gelsey Kirkland appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Kirkland understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Gelsey Kirkland really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Gelsey Kirkland does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Gelsey's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
