approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Shania's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Shania Twain comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Shania Twain - 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 Shania Twain" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Shania a little better. This page describes the disguise Twain wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Twain's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Shania Twain wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Shania Twain wants, Shania Twain usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Shania wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Shania Twain functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Shania Twain usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Twain approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Shania Twain also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Twain. When Shania Twain commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Shania Twain is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Shania Twain as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Shania Twain also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Shania Twain seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Shania Twain has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who she is. She is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Shania Twain has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and she is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Shania Twain seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Shania tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
To others, Shania Twain appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Shania that inspired people to rely on her. Twain keeps her cool in most situations.
Shania Twain appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in her manner. She is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Twain is unreliable.
Shania has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. She may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Shania's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
