approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lisa's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lisa Bonet comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lisa Bonet - 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 Lisa Bonet" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lisa a little better. This page describes the disguise Bonet wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Lisa Bonet 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. Lisa 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. Bonet tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Bonet.
Bonet 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, Lisa Bonet 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 Lisa'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 Lisa 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. Lisa Bonet empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Lisa Bonet 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. Lisa Bonet communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Lisa never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Lisa Bonet likes to get everything out in the open and she generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Bonet may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Bonet's challenge.
Lisa Bonet radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Bonet when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Lisa Bonet which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Lisa is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Lisa Bonet needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Her emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Lisa Bonet makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Bonet. Lisa Bonet appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
Lisa has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Lisa's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Lisa Bonet has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Lisa learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
Her life is never a secret to anyone, for Bonet likes to publicize her plans and let people know exactly where she stands. Others are drawn to Lisa Bonet because of her ease in conversational ability and people often may seek her advice.
