approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Krista's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Krista Allen comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Krista Allen - 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 Krista Allen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Krista a little better. This page describes the disguise Allen wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Krista Allen 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. Krista 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. Allen tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Allen.
Allen 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, Krista Allen 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 Krista'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 Krista 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. Krista Allen empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Krista Allen 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. Krista Allen communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Krista never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Krista Allen has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Krista Allen often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Krista Allen seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that she is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Allen tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Krista Allen to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
