Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner F.

This page describes the disguise Fitzgerald wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and F. Scott Fitzgerald is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Fitzgerald sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Francis Scott's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, F. Scott Fitzgerald himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. F. Scott Fitzgerald is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, F. Scott Fitzgerald is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Fitzgerald probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Fitzgerald's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see F. Scott Fitzgerald as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Francis Scott does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
F. Scott Fitzgerald is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. F. Scott Fitzgerald is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. F. Scott Fitzgerald needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Fitzgerald's work or outside social activities.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and F. Scott Fitzgerald could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Fitzgerald may wish he was not so easy to read.
F. Scott Fitzgerald radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Fitzgerald when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
