approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Corneille's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Corneille Heymans comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Corneille Heymans - 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 Corneille Heymans" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Corneille a little better. This page describes the disguise Heymans wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Corneille Heymans is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Corneille tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Heymans' way of dealing with problems.
Corneille Heymans may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Heymans' emotional balance and well-being.
Corneille Heymans is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Corneille Heymans probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Heymans' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Heymans, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Heymans' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Heymans will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Corneille Heymans overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Heymans' strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Corneille through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Heymans' more rational friends. Corneille Heymans certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Corneille Heymans has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Corneille Heymans to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Corneille Heymans is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Corneille Heymans tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Corneille Heymans which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Corneille is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Heymans sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Corneille Heymans may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Corneille should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Corneille Heymans comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Heymans infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Corneille Heymans does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
He is assertive and bold. Corneille Heymans is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Corneille generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Corneille Heymans' boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Corneille Heymans has a very congenial personality and is at peace and harmony with the world around him. His personal relationships tend to be very harmonious and Corneille is likely to find great satisfaction and fulfillment in love as well.
