approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jean's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jean Harlow comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jean Harlow - 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 Jean Harlow" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jean a little better. This page describes the disguise Harlow wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Jean Harlow will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Jean has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Jean Harlow very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Harlow is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Jean Harlow will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Harlow's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Jean Harlow appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Harlow is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Jean possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Jean Harlow - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Jean Harlow does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Jean.
Others see Jean Harlow as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Harlow shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Jean Harlow usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Her desire to love and to be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Jean Harlow is known for her personal charm and affectionate nature. She may also seem overly dependent on others' approval and appreciation of her.
Jean Harlow appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Harlow infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Jean Harlow does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
The initial impression Harlow makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Jean thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Jean Harlow may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that she does not believe it as vigorously as she does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Jean Harlow tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
Harlow 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 Jean quite a bit.
Jean Harlow feels good about herself and enjoys good relationships with her friends and neighbors. She exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about herself, the world and other people.
Harlow is likely to go her own way in life and she ha a tendency to keep secluded from others. Always preoccupied with her own thoughts and ideas, Jean Harlow gives other people the impression that she does not want to be bothered with their problems.
