approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sophia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Sophia Loren comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sophia Loren - 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 Sophia Loren" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sophia a little better. This page describes the disguise Loren wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, she is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Sophia Loren frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. She is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Loren, and she tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. She is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
She is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning her moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. She is willing to work long and persistently for what she wants and she often does things the hard way. Sophia does not expect others to take care of her and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. She is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about her approach. She is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with her duties to others and how she comes across socially - her "rank" so to speak.
To others Sophia Loren seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Sophia dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display her feelings, especially the more tender ones. Loren likes to always appear poised and in control; and she hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in her armor.
Sophia Loren respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and she feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Loren's guide in life, and she in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which she likes to impart to younger people.
Sophia Loren has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to her personality. She expects much from herself and may not give herself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
She also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve her money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Sophia Loren spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in her. Sophia exercises great self-discipline and self-control and she can "do without" very well. Her tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though she may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Loren shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Sophia Loren appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Loren infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Sophia Loren does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Sophia Loren tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
