approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Greta's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Greta Garbo comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Greta Garbo - 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 Greta Garbo" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Greta a little better. This page describes the disguise Garbo wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Greta Garbo is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Greta Garbo has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Garbo can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Greta Garbo enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Greta never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Greta Garbo has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Garbo may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Greta Garbo responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Greta does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Garbo will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Garbo's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Greta Garbo becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Greta Garbo tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Greta Garbo radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. She likes herself and it shows. She expects success in life and she generally achieves it. However, Garbo also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Greta Garbo seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Greta tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Greta Garbo has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Greta learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
