approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gwen's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Gwen Stefani comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gwen Stefani - 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 Gwen Stefani" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gwen a little better. This page describes the disguise Stefani wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Gwen loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. She is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Gwen Stefani has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything she has yet experienced, and she often lives in her dreams and visions for the future. Gwen Stefani tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and she likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, she always expects something better ahead. Gwen Stefani loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once she achieves it she is on to something else. She is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and she is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for her. Gwen Stefani has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Gwen Stefani cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect her need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Gwen and she may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
She is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. She is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about her convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Gwen Stefani gets carried away with her enthusiasm of the moment and she tends to exaggerate. She is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and she is usually pretty convincing. She does everything in a big way, a generous way. Stefani likes to have the best, and she heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. Her vision is always large. She is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and she is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Gwen Stefani as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. She may also be seen as a wise person since she does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. She is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and she inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
Gwen Stefani appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Gwen Stefani may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Stefani projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Gwen Stefani generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Gwen somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Gwen Stefani emanates.
In significant ways, Stefani's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Gwen Stefani may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Gwen Stefani 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.
