approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Andy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Andy Warhol comes across, the face he shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Andy Warhol" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Andy a little better. This page describes the disguise Warhol wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Andy Warhol 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. Warhol 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 Andy does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
