approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bill's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bill Berry comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bill Berry - 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 Bill Berry" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bill a little better. This page describes the disguise Berry 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 Berry's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Bill Berry wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Bill Berry wants, Bill Berry usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Bill 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. Bill Berry 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. Bill Berry usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Berry approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Bill Berry 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 Berry. When Bill Berry 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, Bill Berry 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 Bill Berry as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Bill Berry also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Bill Berry comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Berry tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Bill has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Bill Berry is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Berry must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Bill Berry feels good about himself and enjoys good relationships with his friends and neighbors. He exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, and he is always willing to learn more about himself, the world and other people.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Bill Berry changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Berry is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
