This page describes the disguise Sarnoff wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, David Sarnoff likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Sarnoff must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever David does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
David Sarnoff also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way.

Sarnoff admires others who are strong individuals like himself.

He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - David expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated.
