approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jane's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jane Asher comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jane Asher - 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 Jane Asher" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jane a little better. This page describes the disguise Asher 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 Asher's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Jane Asher wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Jane Asher wants, Jane Asher usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Jane 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. Jane Asher 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. Jane Asher usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Asher approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Jane Asher 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 Asher. When Jane Asher 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, Jane Asher 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 Jane Asher as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Jane Asher also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Jane Asher is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Jane radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
To others, Jane Asher appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Jane that inspired people to rely on her. Asher keeps her cool in most situations.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
