approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kira's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kira Kener comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kira Kener - 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 Kira Kener" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kira a little better. This page describes the disguise Kener 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, Kira Kener 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. Kira has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Kira Kener very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Kener is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Kira Kener will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Kener'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. Kira Kener 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 Kener is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Kira 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 Kira Kener - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Kira Kener 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 Kira.
Others see Kira Kener as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Kener 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 Kira Kener usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
While tactful and personable, Kira Kener also enjoys being somewhat unconventional and she identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society. Kener can be seen as a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, iconoclast - or just a little "kooky". Shaking up people's rigid preconceptions and prejudices by being her own unique self is something Kira is known for!
Kira Kener appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. She may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Kira Kener may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
In significant ways, Kener's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Kira Kener may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Kira Kener is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
