approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Oriana's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Oriana Fallaci comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Oriana Fallaci - 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 Oriana Fallaci" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Oriana a little better. This page describes the disguise Fallaci wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Oriana Fallaci is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Oriana tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Fallaci's way of dealing with problems.
Oriana Fallaci may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Fallaci's emotional balance and well-being.
Oriana Fallaci is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Oriana Fallaci probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Fallaci's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Fallaci, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Fallaci's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Fallaci will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Oriana Fallaci overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Fallaci's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Oriana through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Fallaci's more rational friends. Oriana Fallaci certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Oriana Fallaci has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Oriana Fallaci to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Oriana Fallaci radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Fallaci when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
She is able to control her feelings and conduct herself in a very proper manner. Because of her inner shyness, Oriana Fallaci tends to separate herself from others and gives the impression that she does not want to be talked to.
Oriana Fallaci tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
