approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rachel's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Rachel Weisz comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rachel Weisz - 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 Rachel Weisz" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rachel a little better. This page describes the disguise Weisz wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Rachel Weisz 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. Rachel 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. Weisz tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Weisz.
Weisz 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, Rachel Weisz 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 Rachel'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 Rachel 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. Rachel Weisz empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Rachel Weisz 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. Rachel Weisz communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Rachel never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Rachel Weisz which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Rachel she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Weisz sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Rachel Weisz may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Rachel should avoid looking always on the dark side.
The way Rachel Weisz comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Rachel pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Weisz's outward demeanor. Rachel Weisz seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Rachel's personality. Weisz can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Rachel Weisz may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Weisz must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Rachel Weisz is. On the other hand, Rachel Weisz may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Rachel Weisz 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.
