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 Woolf comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Virginia Woolf - 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 Woolf" 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 Woolf wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Virginia Woolf is always questioning and learning, and she seems young and alive no matter what her chronological age, for her mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Virginia Woolf has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Woolf can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for she tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. She needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, she is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Virginia Woolf enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. She is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly she may be feeling, Virginia never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Virginia Woolf has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Woolf may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Virginia Woolf responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Virginia does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if she cannot fully grasp something with her reason and logic, Woolf will often choose to ignore it, including her own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Woolf's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Virginia Woolf becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. She is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
Her gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Virginia Woolf tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if she does not have work or other activities that utilize her mental, verbal, and social skills.
Virginia Woolf radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of her own importance. It is hard to ignore Woolf when she is present, and her personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
