approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Benito's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Benito Mussolini comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Benito Mussolini - 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 Benito Mussolini" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Benito a little better. This page describes the disguise Mussolini 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 Mussolini's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Benito Mussolini wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Benito Mussolini wants, Benito Mussolini usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Benito 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. Benito Mussolini 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. Benito Mussolini usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Mussolini approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Benito Mussolini 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 Mussolini. When Benito Mussolini 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, Benito Mussolini 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 Benito Mussolini as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Benito Mussolini also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He may seem to others to be very gentle, malleable, and easily taken in. As a result, people can take advantage of Benito Mussolini, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Benito seems to be continually disappointed by or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be contributing to these situations.
Benito has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Benito Mussolini is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Mussolini must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Benito Mussolini seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Mussolini is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
Benito Mussolini appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Mussolini is unreliable.
