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 Ullmann comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Liv Ullmann - 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 Ullmann" 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 Ullmann wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Liv Ullmann likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Ullmann must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Liv does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
Liv Ullmann also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats her in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Ullmann will rarely confront the offender - she is too proud to do so - but she will lose her affection and respect for them. Liv dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Ullmann admires others who are strong individuals like herself. When Liv Ullmann befriends someone, Ullmann is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. She is very giving and generous, but her gifts are never anonymous - Liv expects recognition and appreciation for them. She also expects the intense loyalty that she offers to her dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Liv Ullmann often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as herself, for she does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If she is not in the leading role, she aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Liv Ullmann has great heart and courage, and people often look to her for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Liv always puts her best face forward and rarely allows others to see her hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Liv Ullmann also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although she does not like others to realize just how important it is to her.
Her outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Her own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Liv more than anything else. Liv Ullmann feels that if she does her best where she is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Liv Ullmann tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Liv does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Liv into trouble. Liv Ullmann tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Liv Ullmann needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Liv Ullmann tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
