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 Newley comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anthony Newley - 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 Newley" 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 Newley wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Newley's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Anthony Newley wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Anthony Newley wants, Anthony Newley usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Anthony wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Anthony Newley functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Anthony Newley usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Newley approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Anthony Newley also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Newley. When Anthony Newley commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Anthony Newley is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Anthony Newley as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Anthony Newley also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Anthony Newley tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Anthony Newley appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Newley understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Anthony Newley really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Anthony Newley tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around him, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
