approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Imelda's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Imelda Chiappa comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Imelda Chiappa - 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 Imelda Chiappa" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Imelda a little better. This page describes the disguise Chiappa wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Imelda Chiappa is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Imelda tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Chiappa's way of dealing with problems.
Imelda Chiappa may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Chiappa's emotional balance and well-being.
Imelda Chiappa is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Imelda Chiappa probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Chiappa's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Chiappa, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Chiappa's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Chiappa will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Imelda Chiappa overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Chiappa's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Imelda through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Chiappa's more rational friends. Imelda Chiappa certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Imelda Chiappa has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Imelda Chiappa to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Imelda Chiappa comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Chiappa is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it.
Imelda Chiappa 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.
Chiappa also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. Imelda Chiappa also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Chiappa has a well developed personality and tends to base her relationships with others on a more personal level. Imelda Chiappa is inclined to seek intellectual relationships and also has a strong desire for soul-unions.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Imelda Chiappa of a position of leadership. She is likely to be successful and her efforts will be recognized by others.
