approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Katarina's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Katarina Witt comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Katarina Witt - 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 Katarina Witt" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Katarina a little better. This page describes the disguise Witt 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 Katarina Witt 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. Witt 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 Katarina'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, Katarina Witt 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. Katarina Witt 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, Katarina Witt is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Witt probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Witt's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Katarina Witt as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Katarina 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.
Katarina Witt is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Katarina Witt is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Katarina Witt 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 Witt's work or outside social activities.
Katarina Witt is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Katarina Witt tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Katarina Witt does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Katarina's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Katarina that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Katarina Witt may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Katarina has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Witt is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Katarina Witt tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
