approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Steffi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Steffi Graf comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Steffi Graf - 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 Steffi Graf" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Steffi a little better. This page describes the disguise Graf wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Steffi Graf is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Steffi Graf has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Graf can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Steffi Graf enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Steffi never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Steffi Graf has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Graf may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Steffi Graf responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Steffi does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Graf will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Graf's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Steffi Graf becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Steffi Graf tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Steffi Graf has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Steffi will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Graf can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Steffi Graf seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that she is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being herself. Graf tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Steffi Graf which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Steffi she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Graf sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Steffi Graf may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Steffi should avoid looking always on the dark side.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Steffi's personality. Graf can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Steffi Graf may feel frustrated because she feels that she is not being perceived very clearly, that she does not make a powerful impression, that she is easily overlooked or discounted. If she does not wish to be "invisible", Graf must make some effort to define and clarify - both for herself and for the rest of the world - who Steffi Graf is. On the other hand, Steffi Graf may purposely create illusions about herself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Her pleasant and friendly disposition enables Steffi Graf to come in quick personal relationships with other people. She enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to her environment.
