approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Nicole's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Nicole Richie comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Nicole Richie - 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 Nicole Richie" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Nicole a little better. This page describes the disguise Richie wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Richie's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Nicole Richie wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Nicole Richie wants, Nicole Richie usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Nicole wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Nicole Richie functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Nicole Richie usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Richie approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Nicole Richie also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Richie. When Nicole Richie commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Nicole Richie is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Nicole Richie as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Nicole Richie also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Nicole Richie identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. She enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever she wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Nicole Richie as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
Nicole Richie can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Nicole that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Richie is around.
