This page describes the disguise Zappa wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Ahmet Zappa likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Zappa must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Ahmet does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Ahmet Zappa also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Zappa will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Ahmet dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Zappa admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Ahmet Zappa befriends someone, Zappa is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Ahmet expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated.

Ahmet always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable.
