approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kristy's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Kristy Swanson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kristy Swanson - 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 Kristy Swanson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kristy a little better. This page describes the disguise Swanson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kristy Swanson meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Kristy projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Swanson is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Kristy Swanson may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Swanson is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Kristy to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Kristy Swanson feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Swanson's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Kristy Swanson it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Kristy Swanson is not a follower. Others see Kristy as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Swanson presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
At times Kristy Swanson comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Swanson's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Kristy Swanson irresistibly.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Kristy Swanson 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, Kristy Swanson often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Kristy Swanson which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Kristy is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Kristy Swanson needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
At times her desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Swanson does things that go against her better judgment. Even Kristy's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Kristy Swanson needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
