approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brady's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Brady Anderson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brady Anderson - 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 Brady Anderson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brady a little better. This page describes the disguise Anderson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Brady Anderson likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Anderson must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Brady does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Brady Anderson also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Anderson will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Brady dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Anderson admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Brady Anderson befriends someone, Anderson is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Brady expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Brady Anderson often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Brady Anderson has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Brady always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Brady Anderson also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Brady more than anything else. Brady Anderson feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
His desire to love and be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Brady Anderson is known for his personal charm and affectionate nature. He may also seem overly dependent on the approval and appreciation of others.
The image that Brady Anderson projects to the world and the person he really is inside are considerably different. So much so that at times Brady may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Anderson makes may actually be misleading. There is also much complexity and tension within him, and Brady Anderson often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of himself.
