approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Whitney's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Whitney Houston comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Whitney Houston - 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 Whitney Houston" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Whitney a little better. This page describes the disguise Houston 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Whitney Houston is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Whitney 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 Houston's way of dealing with problems.
Whitney Houston 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 Houston's emotional balance and well-being.
Whitney Houston is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Whitney Houston probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Houston's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Houston, 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 Houston's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Houston will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Whitney Houston overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Houston'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 Whitney through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Houston's more rational friends. Whitney Houston certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Whitney Houston 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 Whitney Houston 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 is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Whitney's personality. Whitney Houston may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. She may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up her own mind, and Houston may thus appear to be indecisive.
Houston may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way she behaves towards others - or her personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Whitney Houston is always a bit off center.
Whitney Houston also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
At times Whitney Houston comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or she may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where she acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Houston's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Whitney Houston irresistibly.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Whitney Houston which draws people in need to her. Because she has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Whitney is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Whitney Houston needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
The way Whitney Houston comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of hers. Specifically, what gives Whitney pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Houston's outward demeanor. Whitney Houston seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to her or knowing her on more than a superficial level.
Whitney often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve her aims. And naturally if people perceive that she is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Whitney Houston and her objectives. Houston might be more successful if she tones herself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing her own needs and wants.
Whitney Houston has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but she is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in her relationships constantly. Her somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if she is not careful.
Houston is charming and very affectionate, and she expresses her feelings vivaciously. Love comes naturally to Whitney Houston; she seems to be tuned into love from head to toe. Whitney loves to go out and have a good time and little gestures of adoration are important to her.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Whitney Houston needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Whitney has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
