approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Craig's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Craig Parker comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Craig Parker - 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 Craig Parker" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Craig a little better. This page describes the disguise Parker 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 Craig Parker 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. Parker 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 Craig'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, Craig Parker 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. Craig Parker 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, Craig Parker is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Parker probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Parker's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Craig Parker as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Craig 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.
Craig Parker is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Craig Parker is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Craig Parker 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 Parker's work or outside social activities.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Craig Parker has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Craig Parker often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Craig Parker 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. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Craig Parker may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Craig Parker has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Craig will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Parker can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Craig Parker comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Parker may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Craig is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Craig Parker's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Craig Parker often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
