Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Antonio Gramsci" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Antonio a little better. This page describes the disguise Gramsci wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Antonio Gramsci meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Antonio projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Gramsci is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Antonio Gramsci may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Gramsci is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Antonio to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Antonio Gramsci feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Gramsci's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Antonio Gramsci it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Antonio Gramsci is not a follower. Others see Antonio as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Gramsci presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Gramsci may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Antonio Gramsci is always a bit off center.
Antonio Gramsci also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
Antonio has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. Antonio has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
