approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jennifer's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Jennifer Grey comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jennifer Grey - 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 Jennifer Grey" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jennifer a little better. This page describes the disguise Grey wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jennifer Grey appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Jennifer has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Grey tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Grey.
Grey approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Jennifer Grey is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Jennifer's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Jennifer and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Jennifer Grey empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Jennifer Grey is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Jennifer Grey communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Jennifer never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Jennifer often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally, if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Jennifer Grey and her objectives. Grey might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
It may be hard for Jennifer Grey to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Grey displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
Jennifer Grey seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, she may try to avoid responsibility. Her ideas tend to be a bit strange and Jennifer Grey should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
