approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Glenn's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Glenn Close comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Glenn Close - 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 Glenn Close" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Glenn a little better. This page describes the disguise Close wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Glenn Close 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. Close 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 Glenn does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Glenn Close 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. Close will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Glenn dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Close admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Glenn Close befriends someone, Close 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 - Glenn expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Glenn Close 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.
Glenn Close has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Glenn always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Glenn Close 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 Glenn more than anything else. Glenn Close feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
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. Glenn Close tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Glenn does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Her desire to love and be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Glenn Close is known for her personal charm and affectionate nature. She may also seem overly dependent on the approval and appreciation of others.
Glenn Close 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.
Glenn often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Glenn Close and her objectives. Close might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Glenn Close tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
