approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Clarence's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Clarence White comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Clarence White - 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 Clarence White" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Clarence a little better. This page describes the disguise White wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Clarence White always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often White will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Clarence White has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Clarence White also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in White's environment is very important to White.
White steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Clarence White tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Clarence rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Clarence White as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. White has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Clarence may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Clarence White has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Clarence White often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Clarence White 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, Clarence White may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Clarence White seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. White tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
