approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Susannah's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Susannah York comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Susannah York - 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 Susannah York" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Susannah a little better. This page describes the disguise York wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Susannah York is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Susannah tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often York's way of dealing with problems.
Susannah York may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for York's emotional balance and well-being.
Susannah York is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Susannah York probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of York's imagination and fantasy was also very real to York, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense York's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often York will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Susannah York overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not York's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Susannah through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder York's more rational friends. Susannah York certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Susannah York has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Susannah York to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Susannah York radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. She likes herself and it shows. She expects success in life and she generally achieves it. However, York also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate herself, and she can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Susannah York 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, Susannah York may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Susannah that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Susannah York may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Susannah has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused York is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Susannah York tends to get excited easily and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, York seems to come across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
