approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Goedele's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Goedele Liekens comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Goedele Liekens - 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 Goedele Liekens" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Goedele a little better. This page describes the disguise Liekens wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Goedele Liekens is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Goedele tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Liekens' way of dealing with problems.
Goedele Liekens may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Liekens' emotional balance and well-being.
Goedele Liekens is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Goedele Liekens probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Liekens' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Liekens, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Liekens' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Liekens will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Goedele Liekens overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Liekens' strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Goedele through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Liekens' more rational friends. Goedele Liekens certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Goedele Liekens has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Goedele Liekens to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Liekens may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way she behaves towards others - or her personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Goedele Liekens is always a bit off center.
Goedele Liekens also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
At times Goedele Liekens comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Liekens' glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Goedele Liekens irresistibly.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Goedele Liekens could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Liekens may wish she was not so easy to read.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Goedele Liekens needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Goedele has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
