approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gong Li's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Gong Li comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gong Li - 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 Gong Li" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gong Li a little better. This page describes the disguise Gong Li 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Gong Li is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Gong Li 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 Gong Li's way of dealing with problems.
Gong Li 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 Gong Li's emotional balance and well-being.
Gong Li is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Gong Li probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Gong Li's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Gong Li, 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 Gong Li's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Gong Li will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Gong Li overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Gong Li's 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 Gong Li through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Gong Li's more rational friends. Gong Li certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Gong Li 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 Gong Li 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.
Gong Li 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, Gong Li will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Gong Li can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Gong Li which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Gong Li is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Gong Li needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Gong Li tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, thereby appearing rather cold. Gong Li feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Gong Li as a reserved, detached and serious person.
She is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in her environment. Her eternal optimism brings Gong Li the affinity of many people with whom she will have many joyful experiences.
