approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Natasha's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Natasha Richardson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Natasha Richardson - 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 Natasha Richardson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Natasha a little better. This page describes the disguise Richardson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Natasha Richardson will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Natasha has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Natasha Richardson very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Richardson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Natasha Richardson will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Richardson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Natasha Richardson appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Richardson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Natasha possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Natasha Richardson - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Natasha Richardson does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Natasha.
Others see Natasha Richardson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Richardson shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Natasha Richardson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Natasha Richardson appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if she has their best interests at heart. Because others view Richardson as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to her for counsel.
Other people may consider her environment a bit strange and Richardson likes to surround herself with a certain air of mystery. Natasha Richardson tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert her power from behind the scenes.
