In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Cody Linley - 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 Cody Linley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Cody a little better. This page describes the disguise Linley wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Cody Linley is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Linley sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Cody's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Cody Linley himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Cody Linley is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Cody Linley is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Linley probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Linley's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Cody Linley as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Cody does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Cody Linley is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Cody Linley is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Cody Linley needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Linley's work or outside social activities.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Cody into trouble. Cody Linley 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. Cody Linley needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.

In significant ways, Linley's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Cody Linley may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Cody Linley is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Linley do things that go against his better judgment. Even Cody's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Cody Linley needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
