Bill G. Wilson
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 Wilson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bill Wilson - 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 Wilson" 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 Wilson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Bill Wilson will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Bill has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Bill Wilson very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Wilson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Bill Wilson will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Wilson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Bill Wilson appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Wilson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Bill possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Bill Wilson - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Bill Wilson does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Bill.
Others see Bill Wilson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Wilson shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Bill Wilson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Bill Wilson has a friendly, affectionate attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm. His attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about Bill, and is probably something he cares a great deal about. Wilson gets along well with people and knows how to please them. Bill Wilson has a well honed sense of style and beauty.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Bill Wilson which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Bill is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Bill Wilson needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
