approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Virginia's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Virginia Johnson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Virginia Johnson - 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 Virginia Johnson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Virginia a little better. This page describes the disguise Johnson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Virginia Johnson meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Virginia projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Johnson is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Virginia Johnson may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Johnson is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Virginia to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Virginia Johnson feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Johnson's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Virginia Johnson it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Virginia Johnson is not a follower. Others see Virginia as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Johnson presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Virginia Johnson has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and she likes to do things in a big way. If she does this primarily to impress others, Virginia will find that many people prefer to avoid her. Even without meaning to, Johnson can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Virginia Johnson which may make people around her distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Virginia she is constantly scanning their inner motives, and she probably is. Johnson sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and she may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which she perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Virginia Johnson may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Virginia should avoid looking always on the dark side.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Virginia Johnson which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Virginia is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Virginia Johnson needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Johnson may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Virginia quite a bit.
