approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Charles' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Charles Lindbergh comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Charles Lindbergh - 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 Charles Lindbergh" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Charles a little better. This page describes the disguise Lindbergh wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Lindbergh's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Charles Lindbergh wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Charles Lindbergh wants, Charles Lindbergh usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Charles wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Charles Lindbergh functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Charles Lindbergh usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Lindbergh approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Charles Lindbergh also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Lindbergh. When Charles Lindbergh commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Charles Lindbergh is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Charles Lindbergh as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Charles Lindbergh also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Charles Lindbergh 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, Charles Lindbergh may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Charles into trouble. Charles Lindbergh 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. Charles Lindbergh needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Lindbergh projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Charles Lindbergh generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Charles somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Charles Lindbergh emanates.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Charles' personality. Lindbergh can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Charles Lindbergh may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Lindbergh must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Charles Lindbergh is. On the other hand, Charles Lindbergh may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Lindbergh has a well developed personality and tends to base his relationships with others on a more personal level. Charles Lindbergh is inclined to seek mental or intellectual relationships and also has a strong desire for soul-unions.
