approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kristi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kristi Yamaguchi comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kristi Yamaguchi - 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 Kristi Yamaguchi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kristi a little better. This page describes the disguise Yamaguchi wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Kristi Yamaguchi likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Yamaguchi must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Kristi does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Kristi Yamaguchi also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Yamaguchi will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Kristi dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Yamaguchi admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Kristi Yamaguchi befriends someone, Yamaguchi is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Kristi expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Kristi Yamaguchi often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Kristi Yamaguchi has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Kristi always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Kristi Yamaguchi also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Kristi more than anything else. Kristi Yamaguchi feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Kristi Yamaguchi likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Yamaguchi may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Yamaguchi's challenge.
Kristi Yamaguchi has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Kristi will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Yamaguchi can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Kristi Yamaguchi is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Kristi Yamaguchi tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Kristi Yamaguchi seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, she may try to avoid responsibility. Her ideas tend to be a bit strange and Kristi Yamaguchi should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
