approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Pauline's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Pauline Collins comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pauline Collins - 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 Pauline Collins" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Pauline a little better. This page describes the disguise Collins 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Pauline Collins is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Pauline 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 Collins' way of dealing with problems.
Pauline Collins 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 Collins' emotional balance and well-being.
Pauline Collins is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Pauline Collins probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Collins' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Collins, 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 Collins' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Collins will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Pauline Collins overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Collins' 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 Pauline through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Collins' more rational friends. Pauline Collins certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Pauline Collins 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 Pauline Collins 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.
She is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Pauline's personality. Pauline Collins may sometimes come across as a busybody to others. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before she makes up her own mind, and Collins may thus appear to be indecisive.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Pauline Collins likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Collins may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Collins' challenge.
In significant ways, Collins' emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Pauline Collins may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Pauline Collins is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know her well may be quite surprised at her reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept herself, so that she does not act as if her emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Pauline that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Pauline Collins may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Pauline has causes, passions or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Collins is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Pauline Collins has a strong need to influence others and to dominate her home or environment. She is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Collins' relationships will be very important to her and possibly affect her future.
