approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lorna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Lorna Luft comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lorna Luft - 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 Lorna Luft" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lorna a little better. This page describes the disguise Luft wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Lorna Luft has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Luft as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Lorna does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Lorna Luft is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Luft can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Luft has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Lorna Luft appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Lorna often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Lorna is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Luft's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Lorna Luft has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Luft is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Lorna Luft radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. She likes herself and it shows. She expects success in life and she generally achieves it. However, Luft also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Lorna Luft comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in her demeanor. She is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Luft is unreliable.
The initial impression Luft makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Lorna thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Lorna Luft may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though she does not stand behind it as vigorously as she would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Lorna Luft tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.
