approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Francesco's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Francesco Quinn comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Francesco Quinn - 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 Francesco Quinn" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Francesco a little better. This page describes the disguise Quinn wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Francesco Quinn is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Francesco tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Quinn's way of dealing with problems.
Francesco Quinn may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Quinn's emotional balance and well-being.
Francesco Quinn is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Francesco Quinn probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Quinn's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Quinn, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Quinn's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Quinn will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Francesco Quinn overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Quinn's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Francesco through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Quinn's more rational friends. Francesco Quinn certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Francesco Quinn has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Francesco Quinn to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
He is mentally active and restless and he likes to talk, communicate, and exchange ideas with others. Francesco Quinn expresses himself well, and is suited to activities that involve presenting ideas to other people, such as teaching and sales.
Francesco Quinn radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. He likes himself and it shows. He expects success in life and he generally achieves it. However, Quinn also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate himself, and he can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Francesco has good organization skills and he knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in teamwork and adept at negotiating, he can lead successful business meetings. Francesco Quinn can easily obtain all the information he needs in order to make the best deal.
