approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kate's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kate Winslet comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kate Winslet - 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 Kate Winslet" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kate a little better. This page describes the disguise Winslet wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Kate Winslet will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Kate has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Kate Winslet very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Winslet is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Kate Winslet will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Winslet's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Kate Winslet appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Winslet is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Kate possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Kate Winslet - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Kate Winslet does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Kate.
Others see Kate Winslet as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Winslet shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Kate Winslet usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.

Often she is rather quiet, just listening and feeling. She is subtle and knows when to keep silent and wait. Kate acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way.

Kate Winslet tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Kate does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
