approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Uma's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Uma Thurman comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Uma Thurman - 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 Uma Thurman" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Uma a little better. This page describes the disguise Thurman wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, she is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. She is quite humble in her own assessment of herself; she seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well she does something, Uma Thurman always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Thurman will simply refuse to attempt something because she feels she cannot meet her own high standards.
Uma Thurman has an eye for detail and she gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. She is hard to please and her relationships with others may suffer because of this. Uma Thurman also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in her choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Thurman's environment is very important to Thurman.
Thurman steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, she is unlikely to dive into it. Uma Thurman tends to underestimate her own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits her spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of hers. On the other hand, Uma rarely falls flat on her face and what she does, she does very well.
Others see Uma Thurman as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Thurman has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to her. Her clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though she is really quite helpful and caring, she does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Uma may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than she really is at heart. She is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
She is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but she is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Uma Thurman 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, Uma Thurman may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Uma Thurman is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around her, and at times she can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for her, as Uma Thurman tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever she is with. She may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person she is with the most.
Thurman projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Uma Thurman generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and it may seem that she Uma somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Uma Thurman emanates.
Uma Thurman has a big heart, is generous with her affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around her. It is easy for Thurman to establish personal contacts and relationships because of her ability to fully understand others.
Uma Thurman seems to enjoy projecting herself differently to others than she really is, giving them a false impression of herself. She is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
