approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tori's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Tori Amos comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tori Amos - 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 Tori Amos" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tori a little better. This page describes the disguise Amos wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Amos' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Tori Amos wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Tori Amos wants, Tori Amos usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Tori wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Tori Amos functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Tori Amos usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Amos approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Tori Amos also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Amos. When Tori Amos commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Tori Amos is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Tori Amos as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Tori Amos also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Tori Amos has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in her environment. She may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Tori Amos often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
Tori Amos 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, Tori Amos may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Tori Amos comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. She is quite curious and interested in the people and events around her, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Amos also needs to be busy and active, and she moves quickly. Tori Amos also appears to be restless. Keeping her mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Tori Amos tends to be extremely hard on herself and others. She may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Tori does her duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
She may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of her goals and chooses to lead a life on her own. But at the same time Tori Amos often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
