approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Giulietta's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Giulietta Masina comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Giulietta Masina - 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 Giulietta Masina" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Giulietta a little better. This page describes the disguise Masina wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Giulietta Masina meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Giulietta projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Masina is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Giulietta Masina may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Masina is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Giulietta to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Giulietta Masina feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Masina's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Giulietta Masina it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Giulietta Masina is not a follower. Others see Giulietta as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Masina presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
She is forceful and energetic and goes for what she wants quite aggressively. She is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. She may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Giulietta Masina tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Giulietta Masina which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Giulietta is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Masina sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Giulietta Masina may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Giulietta should avoid always looking on the dark side.
In significant ways, Masina's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Giulietta Masina may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Giulietta Masina is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
She is discrete, tactful and adaptable, and has the ability to create a beautiful environment. Giulietta Masina has a knack for entertaining people and appreciates pleasing manners and proper behavior when she is with others.
She is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for her efforts. Giulietta Masina may even achieve a degree of celebrity in her sphere and would make an excellent politician.
