approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Karen's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Karen Allen comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Karen Allen - 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 Karen Allen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Karen a little better. This page describes the disguise Allen wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Karen loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. She is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Karen Allen has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything she has yet experienced, and she often lives in her dreams and visions for the future. Karen Allen tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and she likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, she always expects something better ahead. Karen Allen loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once she achieves it she is on to something else. She is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and she is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for her. Karen Allen has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Karen Allen cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect her need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Karen and she may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
She is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. She is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about her convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Karen Allen gets carried away with her enthusiasm of the moment and she tends to exaggerate. She is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and she is usually pretty convincing. She does everything in a big way, a generous way. Allen likes to have the best, and she heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. Her vision is always large. She is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and she is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Karen Allen as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. She may also be seen as a wise person since she does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. She is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and she inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
Karen Allen appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Karen Allen may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Karen into trouble. Karen Allen tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Karen Allen needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
Karen Allen has a strong need to influence others and to dominate her home or environment. She is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Allen's relationships will be very important to her and possibly affect her future.
