approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sela's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sela Ward comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sela Ward - 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 Sela Ward" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sela a little better. This page describes the disguise Ward 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, Sela Ward 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. Sela has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Sela Ward very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Ward is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Sela Ward will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Ward'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. Sela Ward 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 Ward is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Sela 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 Sela Ward - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Sela Ward 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 Sela.
Others see Sela Ward as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Ward 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 Sela Ward usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Sela Ward has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Sela Ward often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Sela has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with her winning ways, is apt to make her a favorite in her immediate environment. Sela Ward is the "easy" one, and she knows how to please others. However, Ward must not take her personal charm for granted, because she may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Sela often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Sela Ward and her objectives. Ward might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
Sela Ward tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Sela feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Sela Ward as a reserved, detached and serious person.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Sela Ward to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
Sela Ward has a strong need to influence others and to dominate her home or environment. She is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Ward's relationships will be very important to her and possibly affect her future.
