approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Natalie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Natalie Imbruglia comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Natalie Imbruglia - 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 Natalie Imbruglia" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Natalie a little better. This page describes the disguise Imbruglia wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Natalie Imbruglia meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Natalie projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Imbruglia is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Natalie Imbruglia may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Imbruglia is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Natalie to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Natalie Imbruglia feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Imbruglia's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Natalie Imbruglia it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Natalie Imbruglia is not a follower. Others see Natalie as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Imbruglia presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Natalie Imbruglia comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Imbruglia also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Natalie Imbruglia also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
In significant ways, Imbruglia's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Natalie Imbruglia may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Natalie Imbruglia is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
