approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Torrie's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Torrie Wilson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Torrie Wilson - 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 Torrie Wilson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Torrie a little better. This page describes the disguise Wilson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if she strongly disagrees with someone, Torrie Wilson will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. She often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Torrie has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Torrie Wilson very much wants to be liked and because of her need for approval and acceptance, Wilson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. She so much wants to please that often Torrie Wilson will suppress her own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Wilson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
Her need to create harmony extends to her physical environment and personal appearance as well. Torrie Wilson appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. She does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From her home furnishings to her choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
She also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Wilson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Torrie possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to her and finding the right person to share her life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Torrie Wilson - she is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases her self-confidence. Torrie Wilson does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on her partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being herself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Torrie.
Others see Torrie Wilson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to her, this is the sort of face Wilson shows to the world. She possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Her motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Torrie Wilson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Torrie Wilson tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Torrie does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Torrie Wilson can get by in life almost on her personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Torrie that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Wilson is around.
It may be hard for Torrie Wilson to hold her ground and she may be taken advantage of easily. Wilson displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
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.
