approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Raven-Symoné's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Raven-Symoné comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Raven-Symoné - 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 Raven-Symoné" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Raven-Symoné a little better. This page describes the disguise Raven-Symoné 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Raven-Symoné is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Raven-Symoné 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 Raven-Symoné's way of dealing with problems.
Raven-Symoné 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 Raven-Symoné's emotional balance and well-being.
Raven-Symoné is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Raven-Symoné probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Raven-Symoné's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Raven-Symoné, 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 Raven-Symoné's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Raven-Symoné will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Raven-Symoné overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Raven-Symoné'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 Raven-Symoné through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Raven-Symoné's more rational friends. Raven-Symoné certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Raven-Symoné 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 Raven-Symoné 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.
Her emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Raven-Symoné could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Raven-Symoné may wish she were not so easy to read.
She may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Raven-Symoné seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Raven-Symoné tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Raven-Symoné comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. She watches her step, and frequently withdraws if her environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Raven-Symoné may seem much more conservative than she actually is. Raven-Symoné is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As she matures, Raven-Symoné's confidence is likely to grow because she will learn to depend more on her own self-assessment..
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Raven-Symoné is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Raven-Symoné radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Raven-Symoné tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around her, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
