approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sara's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sara Gilbert comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sara Gilbert - 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 Sara Gilbert" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sara a little better. This page describes the disguise Gilbert wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Sara Gilbert 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. Sara 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. Gilbert tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Gilbert.
Gilbert 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, Sara Gilbert 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 Sara'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 Sara 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. Sara Gilbert empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Sara Gilbert 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. Sara Gilbert communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Sara never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Sara Gilbert has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and she tends to take herself and life too seriously. She possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. She may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Sara Gilbert seems authoritarian to others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Sara Gilbert which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Sara is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and she probably is. Gilbert 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, however, Sara Gilbert may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Sara should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Her emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Sara Gilbert makes and how she interacts with the world, and generally her feelings are quite accurate and helpful to her. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people she meets day-to-day is rather easy for Gilbert. Sara Gilbert appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to her, especially when they need guidance or help.
The image that Sara Gilbert projects to the world and the person she really is inside are considerably different. So much so that at times Sara may feel that people do not see or know the real her. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Gilbert makes may actually be misleading. There is also much complexity and tension within her, and Sara Gilbert often feels that she needs to change herself in significant ways or that she continually holds back essential aspects of herself.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Sara's personality. Gilbert can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Sara Gilbert 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", Gilbert must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Sara Gilbert is. On the other hand, Sara Gilbert may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
