approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sandra's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sandra Oh comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sandra Oh - 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 Sandra Oh" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sandra a little better. This page describes the disguise Oh wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Sandra Oh will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Sandra has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Sandra Oh very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Oh is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Sandra Oh will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Oh's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Sandra Oh appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Oh is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Sandra possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Sandra Oh - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Sandra Oh does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Sandra.
Others see Sandra Oh as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Oh shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Sandra Oh usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
While tactful and personable, Sandra Oh also enjoys being somewhat unconventional and she identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society. Oh can be seen as a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, iconoclast - or just a little "kooky". Shaking up people's rigid preconceptions and prejudices by being her own unique self is something Sandra is known for!
Her emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Sandra Oh 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 Oh may wish she were not so easy to read.
Sandra has good organization skills and she knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in teamwork and adept at negotiating, she can lead successful business meetings. Sandra Oh can easily obtain all the information she needs in order to make the best deal.
Sandra Oh tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
