approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Reese's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Reese Witherspoon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Reese Witherspoon - 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 Reese Witherspoon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Reese a little better. This page describes the disguise Witherspoon wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Reese Witherspoon 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. Reese 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. Witherspoon tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Witherspoon.
Witherspoon 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, Reese Witherspoon 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 Reese'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 Reese 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. Reese Witherspoon empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Reese Witherspoon 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. Reese Witherspoon communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Reese never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Reese Witherspoon which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Reese she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Witherspoon 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, Reese Witherspoon may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Reese should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Reese has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Reese Witherspoon is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Witherspoon must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Reese's personality. Witherspoon can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Reese Witherspoon 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", Witherspoon must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Reese Witherspoon is. On the other hand, Reese Witherspoon may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Reese Witherspoon has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
Reese Witherspoon tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and she may feel that she has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by her surroundings. Witherspoon is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
