approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Paloma's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Paloma Picasso comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Paloma Picasso - 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 Paloma Picasso" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Paloma a little better. This page describes the disguise Picasso 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, Paloma Picasso 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. Paloma has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Paloma Picasso very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Picasso is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Paloma Picasso will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Picasso'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. Paloma Picasso 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 Picasso is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Paloma 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 Paloma Picasso - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Paloma Picasso 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 Paloma.
Others see Paloma Picasso as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Picasso 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 Paloma Picasso usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Picasso draws much of her energy and sense of self from her relationships with others. She is inextricably connected with the significant others in her life; Paloma Picasso may feel at a loss without them, even if she appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Paloma appears self-assured - as long as she is secure in the important relationships in her life.
Her desire to love and to be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Paloma Picasso is known for her personal charm and affectionate nature. She may also seem overly dependent on others' approval and appreciation of her.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Paloma Picasso could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Picasso may wish she was not so easy to read.
Paloma Picasso has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Paloma will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Picasso can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Paloma Picasso appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Picasso infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Paloma Picasso does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Paloma Picasso appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take her seriously. She is unlikely to present herself as more than she is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Paloma Picasso seemed mature for her age.
Paloma Picasso has a loving and kind-hearted personality and she loves other people. Picasso can readily express her love and affection and others show their affection for Picasso. Paloma probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
She is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Paloma Picasso is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Paloma present her position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
Paloma Picasso loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Picasso is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for her.
