approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Robin's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Robin Givens comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Robin Givens - 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 Robin Givens" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Robin a little better. This page describes the disguise Givens wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Robin Givens is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Givens sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Robin's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Robin Givens herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Robin Givens is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Robin Givens is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Givens probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Givens' relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Robin Givens as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Robin does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Robin Givens is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Robin Givens is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Robin Givens needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Givens' work or outside social activities.
Robin Givens 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, Robin will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Givens can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Robin Givens is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around her and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Robin Givens tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person she is with the most.
Robin Givens comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her and cannot resist commenting about them.
Givens also needs to be busy and active and she moves quickly. Robin Givens also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
In significant ways, Givens' emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Robin Givens may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Robin Givens 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.
