This page describes the disguise Minnillo wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Vanessa Minnillo is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Minnillo sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Vanessa's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Vanessa Minnillo herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Vanessa Minnillo is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Vanessa Minnillo is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Minnillo probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Minnillo's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Vanessa Minnillo as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Vanessa does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Vanessa Minnillo is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Vanessa Minnillo is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Vanessa Minnillo needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Minnillo's work or outside social activities.
Despite the fact that her core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Vanessa Minnillo 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, Vanessa Minnillo often does not get the full recognition she wishes for.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Vanessa Minnillo that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Also, Minnillo tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Her instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
She is assertive and bold. Vanessa Minnillo is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Vanessa 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, Vanessa Minnillo's boldness is her calling card, and most people feels that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Vanessa Minnillo tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in her surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of her own. She may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
