approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Joan's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Joan BŠez comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Joan BŠez - 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 Joan BŠez" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Joan a little better. This page describes the disguise BŠez wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Joan BŠez meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Joan projects a confident and sometimes arrogant faÁade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. BŠez is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Joan BŠez may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
BŠez is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Joan to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Joan BŠez feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not BŠez's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Joan BŠez it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Joan BŠez is not a follower. Others see Joan as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. BŠez presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
She may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of Joan BŠez, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Joan seems to be continually disappointed by or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naivetť may be contributing to these situations.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Joan BŠez is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Joan radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Joan BŠez that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Also, BŠez tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Her emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Joan BŠez makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets on a day to day level is rather easy for BŠez. Joan BŠez appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
Joan BŠez tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when she is with other people. Joan should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
