approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sasha's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sasha Grey comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sasha Grey - 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 Sasha Grey" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sasha a little better. This page describes the disguise Grey wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Sasha Grey 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. Sasha 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. Grey tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Grey.
Grey 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, Sasha Grey 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 Sasha'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 Sasha 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. Sasha Grey empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Sasha Grey 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. Sasha Grey communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Sasha never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Sasha Grey likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. Her relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Grey may seem to run into more than her share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness her energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Grey's challenge.
To others, she may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Sasha Grey, especially through her pity or sympathy. If Sasha seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, she should try to see how her own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Sasha Grey that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Moreover, Grey tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Sasha Grey has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". Her personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Sasha coaxes rather than coerces. However, if she does not get what she wants, Sasha Grey is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what she needs, or doing it for herself. Grey seems to need others' approval first.
In significant ways, Grey's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way she presents herself. As a result of this inconsistency, Sasha Grey may be uncomfortable showing her instinctive responses and true feelings. She may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Sasha Grey 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.
