approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Chow's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Chow Yun-Fat comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chow Yun-Fat - 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 Chow Yun-Fat" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Chow a little better. This page describes the disguise Yun-Fat wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Chow Yun-Fat 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. Yun-Fat 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 Chow does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Chow Yun-Fat 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. Yun-Fat will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Chow dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Yun-Fat admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Chow Yun-Fat befriends someone, Yun-Fat 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 - Chow expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Chow Yun-Fat 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.
Chow Yun-Fat has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Chow always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Chow Yun-Fat 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 Chow more than anything else. Chow Yun-Fat feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Chow Yun-Fat appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Yun-Fat understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Chow Yun-Fat really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
He is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of his environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Chow Yun-Fat has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success will likely to be his.
He is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Chow Yun-Fat needs his freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Chow has a strong desire to exceed his limits, even if it means having to use force.
