approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Liona's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Liona Boyd comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Liona Boyd - 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 Liona Boyd" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Liona a little better. This page describes the disguise Boyd 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 Boyd's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Liona Boyd wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Liona Boyd wants, Liona Boyd usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Liona 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. Liona Boyd 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. Liona Boyd usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Boyd approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Liona Boyd 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 Boyd. When Liona Boyd 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, Liona Boyd 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 Liona Boyd as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Liona Boyd also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Liona Boyd which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Liona is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Boyd 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, however, Liona Boyd may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Liona should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Liona Boyd radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Boyd when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
She is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in her environment. Her eternal optimism brings Liona Boyd the affinity of many people with whom she will have many joyful experiences.
