approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Christopher's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Christopher Knight comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christopher Knight - 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 Christopher Knight" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Christopher a little better. This page describes the disguise Knight wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Christopher Knight frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Knight, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Christopher does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Christopher Knight seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Christopher dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Knight likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Christopher Knight respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Knight's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Christopher Knight has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Christopher Knight spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Christopher exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Knight shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Christopher into trouble. Christopher Knight 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. Christopher Knight needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Christopher Knight comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Knight also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Christopher Knight also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
