approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Julie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Julie Bowen comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Julie Bowen - 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 Julie Bowen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Julie a little better. This page describes the disguise Bowen wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Julie Bowen 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. Julie 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. Bowen tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Bowen.
Bowen 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, Julie Bowen 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 Julie'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 Julie 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. Julie Bowen empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Julie Bowen 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. Julie Bowen communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Julie never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Julie Bowen which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Julie she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Bowen sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Julie Bowen may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Julie should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Julie's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Julie Bowen also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Bowen needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
She is assertive and bold. Julie Bowen is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Julie generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Julie Bowen's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Julie's personality. Bowen can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Julie Bowen may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Bowen must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Julie Bowen is. On the other hand, Julie Bowen may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Julie has good organizing ability and she knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in team-work and adept in negotiating, she can lead successful business meetings. Julie Bowen can easily obtain all the information she needs in order to make the best deal.
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.
