approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Hedy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Hedy Lamarr comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Hedy Lamarr - 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 Hedy Lamarr" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Hedy a little better. This page describes the disguise Lamarr wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Hedy Lamarr appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Hedy has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Lamarr tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Lamarr.
Lamarr approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Hedy Lamarr is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Hedy's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Hedy and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Hedy Lamarr empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Hedy Lamarr is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Hedy Lamarr communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Hedy never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Hedy's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Moreover, Hedy Lamarr also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Lamarr needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
The way Hedy Lamarr comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Hedy pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Lamarr's outward demeanor. Hedy Lamarr seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Hedy Lamarr does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Hedy's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
Lamarr would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. Hedy Lamarr is very impressionable, has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. She is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
Her life is never a secret to anyone, for Lamarr likes to publicize her plans and let people know exactly where she stands. Others are drawn to Hedy Lamarr because of her conversational ability and people may often seek her advice.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
