approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ezra's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ezra Pound comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ezra Pound - 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 Ezra Pound" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ezra a little better. This page describes the disguise Pound wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ezra Pound meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Ezra projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Pound is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Ezra Pound may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Pound is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Ezra to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Ezra Pound feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Pound's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Ezra Pound it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Ezra Pound is not a follower. Others see Ezra as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Pound presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Ezra Pound appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Pound as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
Ezra has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Ezra's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
He projects himself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of his personality. His will-power probably was developed early in life and Ezra Pound takes control of whatever situation he is involved in.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Ezra Pound tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
Ezra Pound has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and he considers second place already as failure. Very self-confident, Pound has the ability to mold his surrounding to his own needs and is likely to furnish his home according to his taste.
Pound strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Ezra Pound spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
