approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Shanna's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Shanna Ferrigno comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Shanna Ferrigno - 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 Shanna Ferrigno" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Shanna a little better. This page describes the disguise Ferrigno wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Shanna Ferrigno meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Shanna projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Ferrigno is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Shanna Ferrigno may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Ferrigno is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Shanna to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Shanna Ferrigno feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Ferrigno's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Shanna Ferrigno it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Shanna Ferrigno is not a follower. Others see Shanna as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Ferrigno presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Shanna Ferrigno appears to be sweet to other people, and she knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get her point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Shanna Ferrigno may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
She is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of her environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Shanna Ferrigno has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be hers.
