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 Ferguson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Craig Ferguson - 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 Ferguson" 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 Ferguson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Craig Ferguson will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Craig has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Craig Ferguson very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Ferguson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Craig Ferguson will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Ferguson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Craig Ferguson appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Ferguson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Craig possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Craig Ferguson - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Craig Ferguson does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Craig.
Others see Craig Ferguson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Ferguson shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Craig Ferguson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Craig Ferguson likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Ferguson may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Ferguson's challenge.
Craig has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Craig Ferguson is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Ferguson must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Craig Ferguson comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Ferguson is unreliable.
The image that Craig Ferguson projects to the world and the person he really is inside are considerably different. So much so that at times Craig may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Ferguson makes may actually be misleading. There is also much complexity and tension within him, and Craig Ferguson often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of himself.
