approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gina's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Gina Gershon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gina Gershon - 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 Gina Gershon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gina a little better. This page describes the disguise Gershon wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Gina Gershon always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Gershon will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Gina Gershon has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Gina Gershon also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Gershon's environment is very important to Gershon.
Gershon steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Gina Gershon tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Gina rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Gina Gershon as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Gershon has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Gina may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
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. Gina Gershon tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Gina does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Gina Gershon appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she had their best interest at heart. Because others view Gershon as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek her counsel.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Gina Gershon seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Gina tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Gina Gershon is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Gina radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Gina Gershon tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
Gershon may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
