approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Liv's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Liv Tyler comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Liv Tyler - 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 Liv Tyler" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Liv a little better. This page describes the disguise Tyler wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Liv Tyler 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. Liv 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. Tyler tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Tyler.
Tyler 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, Liv Tyler 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 Liv'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 Liv 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. Liv Tyler empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Liv Tyler 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. Liv Tyler communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Liv never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
The effect of her childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Liv learned while young, are clearly apparent in her demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises Liv Tyler seems childish and needy. When she is in smoother waters, she appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
She is assertive and bold. Liv Tyler is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Liv generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Liv Tyler's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Liv's personality. Tyler can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Liv Tyler may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Tyler must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Liv Tyler is. On the other hand, Liv Tyler may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Liv Tyler tends to be somewhat insecure in her relationships with other people and she strives for safety and security in her life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Liv, and she has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
Liv Tyler tends to get excited easily and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Tyler seems to come across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
