approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Anthony's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Anthony Zerbe comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anthony Zerbe - 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 Anthony Zerbe" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Anthony a little better. This page describes the disguise Zerbe wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Anthony Zerbe always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Zerbe will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Anthony Zerbe has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Anthony Zerbe also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Zerbe's environment is very important to Zerbe.
Zerbe steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Anthony Zerbe tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Anthony rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Anthony Zerbe as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Zerbe has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Anthony may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Anthony into trouble. Anthony Zerbe tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Anthony Zerbe needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Anthony Zerbe comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Zerbe infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Anthony Zerbe does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Zerbe is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and he strives for a pleasant life. He likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to his fellow man. It makes Anthony Zerbe happy to be involved in many relationships and he is very sympathetic toward everyone.
Zerbe strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Anthony Zerbe spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
