approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Luise's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Luise Rainer comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Luise Rainer - 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 Luise Rainer" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Luise a little better. This page describes the disguise Rainer wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Luise Rainer 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. Luise 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. Rainer tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Rainer.
Rainer 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, Luise Rainer 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 Luise'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 Luise 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. Luise Rainer empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Luise Rainer 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. Luise Rainer communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Luise never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Luise Rainer appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Rainer understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Luise Rainer really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
At times her desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Rainer do things that go against her better judgment. Even Luise's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Luise Rainer needs to be aware of her tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Her attitude toward life is governed by her feelings and Luise Rainer tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Luise has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting her judgment, they are likely to come to Rainer for advice.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
