approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Billy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Billy Corgan comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Billy Corgan - 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 Billy Corgan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Billy a little better. This page describes the disguise Corgan wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Billy Corgan always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Corgan will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Billy Corgan has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Billy Corgan also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Corgan's environment is very important to Corgan.
Corgan steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Billy Corgan tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Billy rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Billy Corgan as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Corgan has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Billy may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Although he has a realistic and conservative outlook in many ways, Billy Corgan nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original and a free thinker. Corgan can be a very effective reformer, working within the system to make it better. Billy Corgan often feels frustrated by inefficiency and poor moral conduct in institutions and organizations. Corgan's contributions are probably more significant and the ensuing improvements more important than Billy Corgan gives himself credit for.
Corgan draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; Billy Corgan may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Billy appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
Corgan projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Billy Corgan generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Billy somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Billy Corgan emanates.
Billy Corgan tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
The way Billy Corgan comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Billy pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Corgan's outward demeanor. Billy Corgan seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
Billy Corgan has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Billy wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
