This page describes the disguise Hemingway wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Ernest Hemingway always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hemingway will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Ernest Hemingway has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this.

Hemingway steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved.

Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Ernest rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.

Ernest may seem more businesslike and factual, as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
