approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Andrew's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Andrew Lawrence comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Andrew Lawrence - 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 Andrew Lawrence" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Andrew a little better. This page describes the disguise Lawrence wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Andrew Lawrence 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 Lawrence 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. Andrew does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Andrew Lawrence 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. Lawrence 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 Lawrence 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. Andrew Lawrence 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, Andrew 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. Andrew 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 Lawrence'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.
Andrew Lawrence 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. Lawrence 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.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Andrew Lawrence seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Andrew tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Andrew Lawrence which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Andrew is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Andrew Lawrence needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Andrew often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Andrew Lawrence and his objectives. Lawrence might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
Andrew Lawrence has a tendency to react violently to the influence of his surroundings and to throw himself headlong into everything he does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Andrew learns to alter his conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in his relationships.
