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 Tafi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Andrea Tafi - 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 Tafi" 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 Tafi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Andrea Tafi will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Andrea has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Andrea Tafi very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Tafi is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Andrea Tafi will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Tafi's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Andrea Tafi appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Tafi is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Andrea possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Andrea Tafi - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Andrea Tafi does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Andrea.
Others see Andrea Tafi as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Tafi shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Andrea Tafi usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Andrea's personality. Andrea Tafi may sometimes come across as a busybody to others. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before he makes up his own mind, and Tafi may thus appear to be indecisive.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Andrea Tafi makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Tafi. Andrea Tafi appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Tafi may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself. Moreover, he may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
Andrea Tafi has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Tafi can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Tafi. Andrea probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
Tafi is charming and very affectionate, and he expresses his feelings vivaciously. Love comes naturally to Andrea Tafi; he seems to be tuned into love from head to toe. Andrea loves to go out and have a good time and little gestures of adoration are important to him.
