approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Norah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Norah Jones comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Norah Jones - 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 Norah Jones" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Norah a little better. This page describes the disguise Jones wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Norah Jones 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. Norah 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. Jones tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Jones.
Jones 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, Norah Jones 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 Norah'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 Norah 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. Norah Jones empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Norah Jones 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. Norah Jones communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Norah never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Norah Jones 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, Jones also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Norah's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Norah Jones also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Jones needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Norah Jones is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Norah radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Norah Jones has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
Norah Jones seems to enjoy projecting herself differently to others than she really is, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
