approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Judi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Judi Dench comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Judi Dench - 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 Judi Dench" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Judi a little better. This page describes the disguise Dench wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Judi Dench is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Dench sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Judi's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Judi Dench herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Judi Dench is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Judi Dench is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Dench probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Dench's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Judi Dench as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Judi does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Judi Dench is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Judi Dench is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Judi Dench needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Dench's work or outside social activities.
Judi Dench has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and she tends to take herself and life too seriously. She possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. She may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Judi Dench seems authoritarian to others.
Judi Dench appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Dench is unreliable.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Judi that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Judi Dench may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Judi has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Dench is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
