Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Sônia Braga" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sônia a little better. This page describes the disguise Braga wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Sônia loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. She is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Sônia Braga has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything she has yet experienced, and she often lives in her dreams and visions for the future. Sônia Braga tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and she likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, she always expects something better ahead. Sônia Braga loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once she achieves it she is on to something else. She is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and she is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for her. Sônia Braga has great faith in life and she bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Sônia Braga cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect her need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Sônia and she may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
She is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. She is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about her convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Sônia Braga gets carried away with her enthusiasm of the moment and she tends to exaggerate. She is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and she is usually pretty convincing. She does everything in a big way, a generous way. Braga likes to have the best, and she heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. Her vision is always large. She is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and she is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Sônia Braga as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. She may also be seen as a wise person since she does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. She is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and she inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
At times her feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Sônia into trouble. Sônia Braga tends to take offense when none was intended. She may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Sônia Braga needs to moderate her temper to avoid constant irritation with those in her environment.
The initial impression Braga makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Sônia thinks and her true opinions are not always readily apparent. Sônia Braga may try to clothe her ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, she may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that she does not believe it as vigorously as she does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Sônia Braga tends to become scattered and nervous when she is out of balance. She needs clarity and order in her environment to be at her finest.

Sônia Braga tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to her. She is likely to think that other people are more important than she is and prefers to live in seclusion.
