approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Eric's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Eric Snow comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Eric Snow - 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 Eric Snow" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Eric a little better. This page describes the disguise Snow 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Eric Snow is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Eric 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 Snow's way of dealing with problems.
Eric Snow 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 Snow's emotional balance and well-being.
Eric Snow is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Eric Snow probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Snow's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Snow, 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 Snow's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Snow will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Eric Snow overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Snow's 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 Eric through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Snow's more rational friends. Eric Snow certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Eric Snow 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 Eric Snow 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.
Eric Snow 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, Snow may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Eric is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Eric Snow's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Eric Snow makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Snow. Eric Snow appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Eric Snow does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Eric's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
Eric Snow has a radiant, winning personality and others see him as a person used to achieving success. , Eric Snow is broadminded and is willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. He is helpful and tolerant as long as his moral and ethical standards are respected.
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 Eric Snow often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
