approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Linda's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Linda McCartney comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Linda McCartney - 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 Linda McCartney" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Linda a little better. This page describes the disguise McCartney wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind McCartney's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Linda McCartney wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Linda McCartney wants, Linda McCartney usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Linda wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Linda McCartney functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Linda McCartney usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. McCartney approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Linda McCartney also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to McCartney. When Linda McCartney commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Linda McCartney is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Linda McCartney as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Linda McCartney also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Linda McCartney has a friendly, affectionate attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm. Her attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about Linda, and is probably something she cares a great deal about. McCartney gets along well with people and knows how to please them. Linda McCartney has a well honed sense of style and beauty.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Linda McCartney which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Linda she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. McCartney 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 though, Linda McCartney may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Linda should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Linda McCartney tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and she may feel that she has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by her surroundings. McCartney is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
