approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Zara's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Zara Phillips comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Zara Phillips - 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 Zara Phillips" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Zara a little better. This page describes the disguise Phillips wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Phillips' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Zara Phillips wants something she goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Zara Phillips wants, Zara Phillips usually gets.
She is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Zara wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Zara Phillips functions well in crisis situations and she often seeks them out, for she enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
She is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Zara Phillips usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Phillips approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why she feels or acts the way she does. Zara Phillips also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships she is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until she gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Phillips. When Zara Phillips commits herself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, she is intensely loyal and devoted to them and she also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If she is ever betrayed by someone she cares deeply for, Zara Phillips is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as she once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, she is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever she cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in her.
Because of her natural reserve, others may see Zara Phillips as something of an enigma. She is quite self-protective and often defensive. Zara Phillips also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Phillips draws much of her energy and sense of self from her relationships with others. She is inextricably connected with the significant others in her life; Zara Phillips may feel at a loss without them, even if she appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Zara appears self-assured - as long as she is secure in the important relationships in her life.
She projects herself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of her personality. Her will-power probably was developed early in life and Zara Phillips takes control of whatever situation she is involved in.
