approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Blake's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit - 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 Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Blake a little better. This page describes the disguise Wilhoit wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Blake tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Wilhoit's way of dealing with problems.
Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Wilhoit's emotional balance and well-being.
Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Wilhoit's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Wilhoit, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Wilhoit's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Wilhoit will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Wilhoit's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Blake through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Wilhoit's more rational friends. Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Blake into trouble. Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Wilhoit.
