approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Farley's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Farley Granger comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Farley Granger - 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 Farley Granger" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Farley a little better. This page describes the disguise Granger wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Farley Granger 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, Farley 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. Granger 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. Farley Granger 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.
Granger 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 Farley to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Farley Granger 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 Granger's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Farley Granger 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. Farley Granger is not a follower. Others see Farley as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Granger presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Farley has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Farley Granger is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Granger must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Farley Granger is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Farley radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Farley Granger has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. He is very sensitive and his emotional state depends a lot on the influence of his immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason, others may see Farley as a somewhat unstable person.
