approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Suha's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Suha Arafat comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Suha Arafat - 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 Suha Arafat" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Suha a little better. This page describes the disguise Arafat wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Suha Arafat appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Suha has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Arafat tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Arafat.
Arafat approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Suha Arafat is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Suha's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Suha and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Suha Arafat empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Suha Arafat is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Suha Arafat communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Suha never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
Suha Arafat appears confident and self-assured and she makes a clear, strong impression on others. She is very concerned with the impact she makes on others and with getting personal recognition, sometimes too much so. Suha Arafat tends to dominate in relationships and to be oblivious to others' points of view if they differ very much from Arafat's own.
Suha Arafat 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, Suha will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Arafat can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
She is assertive and bold. Suha Arafat is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Suha generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Suha Arafat's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Arafat may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Suha quite a bit.
Arafat would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. Very impressionable, Suha Arafat has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. She is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
Suha Arafat has a tendency to react violently to the influence of her surroundings and to throw herself headlong into everything she does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Suha learns to alter her conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in her relationships.
