approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Holly's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Holly Valance comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Holly Valance - 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 Holly Valance" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Holly a little better. This page describes the disguise Valance wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Holly Valance 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. Holly 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. Valance tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Valance.
Valance 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, Holly Valance 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 Holly'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 Holly 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. Holly Valance empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Holly Valance 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. Holly Valance communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Holly never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Holly Valance 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 Valance may wish she was not so easy to read.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Holly Valance which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Holly she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Valance sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Holly Valance may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Holly should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Holly Valance can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Holly that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Valance is around.
Holly Valance comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Valance also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Holly Valance also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
She is assertive and bold. Holly Valance is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Holly generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Holly Valance's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
