approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Victoria's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Victoria Shaw comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Victoria Shaw - 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 Victoria Shaw" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Victoria a little better. This page describes the disguise Shaw 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Victoria Shaw is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Victoria 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 Shaw's way of dealing with problems.
Victoria Shaw 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 Shaw's emotional balance and well-being.
Victoria Shaw is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Victoria Shaw probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Shaw's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Shaw, 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 Shaw's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Shaw will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Victoria Shaw overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Shaw'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 Victoria through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Shaw's more rational friends. Victoria Shaw certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Victoria Shaw 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 Victoria Shaw 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.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Victoria Shaw seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Victoria tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Victoria Shaw that may have little to do with her physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that she emanates. Also, Shaw 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.
Her life is never a secret to anyone, for Shaw likes to publicize her plans and let people know exactly where she stands. Others are drawn to Victoria Shaw because of her ease in conversational ability and people often may seek her advice.
She may find it difficult to get ahead because Victoria lacks the vitality to do so. Victoria Shaw tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining herself too much. Quite often, though, her plans just seem to hang in the air.
