approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Zooey's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Zooey Deschanel comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Zooey Deschanel - 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 Zooey Deschanel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Zooey a little better. This page describes the disguise Deschanel wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Zooey Deschanel has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and her two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though she may, on occasion, have her head in the clouds). Others often see Deschanel as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. She is, in fact, amazingly consistent for she possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to her regular routine. Zooey does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though she has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Zooey Deschanel is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. She follows her own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before she feels sure about it. Deschanel can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. She will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something she does not want to do.
When Deschanel has a purpose, she is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. Her obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make her flare up or respond to their anger. Zooey Deschanel appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind her easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Zooey often wins simply due to her relentless persistence and her ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for her reluctance to make changes is her very strong need for security. Zooey is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and she also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of her own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Deschanel's hankering for permanence is that she easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Zooey Deschanel has a keen appreciation of the natural world and she derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. She is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and she knows how to enjoy herself. Deschanel is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. She is also a great lover of beauty and her tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
She is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Zooey Deschanel is or what she wants - she is pretty much up front. Zooey radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when she is at her best. She seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Zooey Deschanel seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if she has traveled widely. She radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Deschanel is apt to have a significant impact on the people she encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
Zooey Deschanel loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Deschanel is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for her.
