approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Idina's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Idina Menzel comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Idina Menzel - 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 Idina Menzel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Idina a little better. This page describes the disguise Menzel wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Idina Menzel always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Menzel will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Idina Menzel has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Idina Menzel also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Menzel's environment is very important to Menzel.
Menzel steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Idina Menzel tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Idina rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Idina Menzel as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Menzel has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Idina may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Idina Menzel has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Idina will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Menzel can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Idina Menzel comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Menzel may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Idina is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Idina Menzel's confidence is likely to grow because she will learn to depend more on her own self-assessment..
Idina Menzel is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Idina Menzel tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
