approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Carlo's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Carlo Carrą comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Carlo Carrą - 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 Carlo Carrą" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Carlo a little better. This page describes the disguise Carrą wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Carlo Carrą appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Carlo has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Carrą tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Carrą.
Carrą approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Carlo Carrą is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Carlo's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Carlo and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Carlo Carrą empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Carlo Carrą is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Carlo Carrą communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Carlo never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Carlo Carrą appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Carlo Carrą may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Carlo Carrą appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Carrą is unreliable.
Carlo Carrą 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.
He is very sensitive to his surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Carlo Carrą tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that he cannot stand up to them.
