approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Iman's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Iman Abdulmajid comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Iman Abdulmajid - 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 Iman Abdulmajid" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Iman a little better. This page describes the disguise Abdulmajid 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 Abdulmajid's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Iman Abdulmajid wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Iman Abdulmajid wants, Iman Abdulmajid usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Iman 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. Iman Abdulmajid 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. Iman Abdulmajid usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Abdulmajid approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Iman Abdulmajid 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 Abdulmajid. When Iman Abdulmajid 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, Iman Abdulmajid 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 Iman Abdulmajid as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Iman Abdulmajid also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Iman Abdulmajid has a great fear of losing control or letting down her guard, which prevents her from opening up to other people.
Expressing herself in an open, non-defensive way does not come easily to Abdulmajid, and at times she feels like a pressure cooker, holding a great deal of her passionate feelings and drives inside. Because she does not share her deepest self readily, Iman may begin to believe that the feelings she has are uncommon and even shameful or evil. Iman Abdulmajid tends to think the worst of herself. She projects a secretive, dark, mysterious, or "bad" image to others.
On the positive side, Iman Abdulmajid is capable of enormous discipline and serious, sustained effort in whatever area she chooses.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Iman into trouble. Iman Abdulmajid tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Iman Abdulmajid needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Iman Abdulmajid 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, Iman will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Abdulmajid can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
