approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Zhang's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Zhang Ziyi comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Zhang Ziyi - 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 Zhang Ziyi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Zhang a little better. This page describes the disguise Ziyi wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Zhang Ziyi 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. Zhang Ziyi has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and she learns easily, but she also gets bored rather quickly. Ziyi 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. Zhang Ziyi 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, Zhang never comes across as melancholic or somber. She may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Zhang Ziyi has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent her from taking herself or life too seriously. In fact, Ziyi may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Zhang Ziyi responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and she may not empathize with people very much. Zhang 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, Ziyi 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 Ziyi's and her life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to her restlessness. Zhang Ziyi 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. Zhang Ziyi 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.
Ziyi projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that she is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Zhang Ziyi generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to her, and she may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Zhang Ziyi emanates.
The way Zhang Ziyi comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of her character. Specifically, what gives Zhang pleasure, how she likes to give and receive affection, and what she seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Ziyi's outward demeanor. Zhang Ziyi 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.
She is very sensitive to her surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Zhang Ziyi tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that she cannot stand up to them.
