approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of JoBeth's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way JoBeth Williams comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner JoBeth Williams - 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 JoBeth Williams" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know JoBeth a little better. This page describes the disguise Williams 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere JoBeth Williams is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact JoBeth 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 Williams' way of dealing with problems.
JoBeth Williams 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 Williams' emotional balance and well-being.
JoBeth Williams is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child JoBeth Williams probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Williams' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Williams, 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 Williams' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Williams will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. JoBeth Williams overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Williams' 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 JoBeth through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Williams' more rational friends. JoBeth Williams certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and JoBeth Williams 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 JoBeth Williams 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.
JoBeth Williams seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know her or form close friendships with her. To others, JoBeth may appear standoffish, as if she were judging them from afar.
JoBeth Williams comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Williams infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, JoBeth Williams does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Williams projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because JoBeth Williams generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and she may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that JoBeth Williams emanates.
