approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Katsuni's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Katsuni comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Katsuni - 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 Katsuni" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Katsuni a little better. This page describes the disguise Katsuni wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Katsuni 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. Katsuni 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. Katsuni tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Katsuni.
Katsuni 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, Katsuni 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 Katsuni'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 Katsuni 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. Katsuni empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Katsuni 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. Katsuni communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Katsuni never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Katsuni has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Katsuni often does not get the full recognition she yearns for.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Katsuni which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Katsuni is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Katsuni 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, however, Katsuni may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Katsuni should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Katsuni has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with her winning ways - is likely to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Katsuni is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Katsuni must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Katsuni comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Katsuni infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Katsuni does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Katsuni makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Katsuni. Katsuni appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
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.
