approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jeanne's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jeanne Moreau comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jeanne Moreau - 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 Jeanne Moreau" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jeanne a little better. This page describes the disguise Moreau wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jeanne Moreau has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Moreau as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Jeanne does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Jeanne Moreau is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Moreau can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Moreau has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Jeanne Moreau appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Jeanne often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Jeanne is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Moreau's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Jeanne Moreau has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Moreau is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Jeanne Moreau could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Moreau may wish she was not so easy to read.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Jeanne Moreau seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Jeanne tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Jeanne has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Jeanne's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Moreau 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 Jeanne quite a bit.
It could be hard for Jeanne Moreau to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Moreau displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
