Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Erich Maria Remarque" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Erich a little better. This page describes the disguise Remarque wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Erich loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Erich Maria Remarque has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Erich Maria Remarque tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Erich Maria Remarque loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Erich Maria Remarque has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Erich Maria Remarque cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Erich and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Erich Maria Remarque gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Remarque likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Erich Maria Remarque as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Erich's personality. Erich Maria Remarque may sometimes come across as a busybody to others. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before he makes up his own mind, and Remarque may thus appear to be indecisive.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Erich Maria Remarque, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Erich seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Erich Maria Remarque has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Erich has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
Remarque strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Erich Maria Remarque spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
