approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jenna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jenna Dewan comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jenna Dewan - 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 Jenna Dewan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jenna a little better. This page describes the disguise Dewan 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Jenna Dewan is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Jenna 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 Dewan's way of dealing with problems.
Jenna Dewan 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 Dewan's emotional balance and well-being.
Jenna Dewan is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Jenna Dewan probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Dewan's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Dewan, 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 Dewan's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Dewan will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Jenna Dewan overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Dewan'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 Jenna through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Dewan's more rational friends. Jenna Dewan certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Jenna Dewan 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 Jenna Dewan 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.
At times her desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Dewan do things that go against her better judgment. Even Jenna's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Jenna Dewan needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
