approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kelly's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kelly MacDonald comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kelly MacDonald - 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 Kelly MacDonald" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kelly a little better. This page describes the disguise MacDonald wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kelly MacDonald 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. Kelly 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. MacDonald tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to MacDonald.
MacDonald 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, Kelly MacDonald 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 Kelly'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 Kelly 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. Kelly MacDonald empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Kelly MacDonald 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. Kelly MacDonald communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Kelly never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Kelly MacDonald which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Kelly is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. MacDonald 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, Kelly MacDonald may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Kelly should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Kelly MacDonald radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore MacDonald when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Kelly MacDonald comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses her interest. MacDonald infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Kelly MacDonald does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
The initial impression MacDonald makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Kelly thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Kelly MacDonald may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though she does not stand behind it as vigorously as she would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Kelly MacDonald tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
The way Kelly MacDonald comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Kelly pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on MacDonald's outward demeanor. Kelly MacDonald seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
She is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. MacDonald always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Kelly MacDonald takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
Kelly MacDonald tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. Her emotions seem to play a big part in her relationships with others and MacDonald bases her relationships on inner understanding between people.
