approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Akio's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Akio Morita comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Akio Morita - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his 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 Akio Morita" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Akio a little better. This page describes the disguise Morita wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Akio Morita has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Morita as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Akio does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Akio Morita is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Morita can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Morita has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Akio Morita appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Akio often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Akio is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Morita's hankering for permanence is that he 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.
Akio Morita has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Morita is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Akio Morita seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Morita is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
To others, Akio Morita appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Akio that inspired people to rely on him. Morita keeps his cool in most situations.
Akio Morita has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Akio coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Akio Morita is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Morita seems to need others' approval first.
Morita's intellect and his emotions are well balanced. Akio has the ability to manage his feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about him. Akio Morita likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
He is very sensitive to his surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Akio Morita tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that he cannot stand up to them.
