Kate is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Kate Beckinsale may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Kate may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
