approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Zizi's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Zizi Jeanmaire comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Zizi Jeanmaire - 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 Zizi Jeanmaire" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Zizi a little better. This page describes the disguise Jeanmaire wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Zizi Jeanmaire appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Zizi has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Jeanmaire tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Jeanmaire.
Jeanmaire approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Zizi Jeanmaire is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Zizi's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Zizi and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Zizi Jeanmaire empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Zizi Jeanmaire is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Zizi Jeanmaire communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Zizi never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She is extremely willful, but she often achieves her desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. She may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or she may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Zizi Jeanmaire tends to go to extremes in whatever she does, to be compulsive, and she is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Zizi does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Zizi Jeanmaire can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Zizi that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually she appears confident and clear about who she is, and it is very difficult not to notice her or feel her influence when Jeanmaire is around.
Zizi Jeanmaire tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Zizi feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Zizi Jeanmaire as a reserved, detached and serious person.
At times Zizi Jeanmaire may feels that she is all alone in the world and that other people only cause difficulties for her. Constantly bounced to and fro by others, Zizi has a strong desire to free herself from her stressful surroundings.
