approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Balthazar's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Balthazar Getty comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Balthazar Getty - 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 Balthazar Getty" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Balthazar a little better. This page describes the disguise Getty wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Balthazar Getty 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 Getty 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. Balthazar does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Balthazar Getty 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. Getty 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 Getty 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. Balthazar Getty 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, Balthazar 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. Balthazar 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 Getty'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.
Balthazar Getty 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. Getty 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 as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Balthazar Getty seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Balthazar tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Balthazar Getty appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Balthazar Getty may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Getty projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Balthazar Getty generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Balthazar Getty emanates.
Balthazar Getty comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Balthazar Getty was mature for his age.
