approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bob's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bob Fosse comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bob Fosse - 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 Bob Fosse" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bob a little better. This page describes the disguise Fosse wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Bob Fosse is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Fosse sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Bob's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Bob Fosse himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Bob Fosse is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Bob Fosse is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Fosse probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Fosse's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Bob Fosse as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Bob does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Bob Fosse is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Bob Fosse is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Bob Fosse needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Fosse's work or outside social activities.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Bob Fosse, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Bob seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Bob Fosse comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Fosse may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Bob is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Bob Fosse's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Bob Fosse radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Fosse when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Bob Fosse 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 Fosse. Bob Fosse appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
The initial impression Fosse makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Bob thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Bob Fosse may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Bob Fosse tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
