approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Hope's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Hope Lange comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Hope Lange - 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 Hope Lange" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Hope a little better. This page describes the disguise Lange wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Lange's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Hope Lange wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Hope Lange wants, Hope Lange usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Hope wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Hope Lange functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Hope Lange usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Lange approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Hope Lange also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Lange. When Hope Lange commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Hope Lange is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Hope Lange as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Hope Lange also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Hope Lange has a penetrating intellect and a probing desire to uncover others' deeper motives or the hidden truth about any matter. She is intense and totally disinterested in shallow conversation, and can make some people uncomfortable. Hope often comes across as a bit caustic or sarcastic, even when she does not mean to.
Hope Lange seems to enjoy projecting a different image of herself to others, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
