approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Isabelle's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Isabelle Adjani comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Isabelle Adjani - 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 Isabelle Adjani" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Isabelle a little better. This page describes the disguise Adjani wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Isabelle Adjani meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Isabelle projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Adjani is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Isabelle Adjani may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Adjani is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Isabelle to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Isabelle Adjani feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Adjani's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Isabelle Adjani it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Isabelle Adjani is not a follower. Others see Isabelle as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Adjani presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Isabelle Adjani has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Isabelle coax rather than coerce. However, if she does not get what she wants, Isabelle Adjani is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing for herself. Adjani seems to need others' approval first.
Adjani may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Isabelle quite a bit.
Isabelle Adjani has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, her emotional state depends a lot on the influence of her immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason others may see Isabelle as a somewhat unstable person.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Isabelle Adjani a position of leadership. She is likely to be successful and her efforts will be recognized by others.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Isabelle Adjani to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
