approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Andrea's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Andrea Casiraghi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Andrea Casiraghi - 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 Andrea Casiraghi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Andrea a little better. This page describes the disguise Casiraghi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Andrea Casiraghi frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Casiraghi, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Andrea does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Andrea Casiraghi seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Andrea dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Casiraghi likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Andrea Casiraghi respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Casiraghi's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Andrea Casiraghi has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Andrea Casiraghi spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Andrea exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Casiraghi shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
In addition to his responsible and mature demeanor, Andrea Casiraghi also radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism which inspires trust and good feelings in others. He expects success in life and he generally achieves it. Andrea Casiraghi tends to create opportunities for himself wherever he goes, through his sincerity and positive attitude.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Andrea Casiraghi could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Casiraghi may wish he were not so easy to read.
He is assertive and bold. Andrea Casiraghi is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Andrea generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Andrea Casiraghi's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Andrea Casiraghi comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Andrea Casiraghi was mature for his age.
