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 Severi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Francesco Severi - 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 Severi" 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 Severi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Severi's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Francesco Severi wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Francesco Severi wants, Francesco Severi usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Francesco wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Francesco Severi functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Francesco Severi usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Severi approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Francesco Severi also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Severi. When Francesco Severi commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Francesco Severi is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Francesco Severi as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Francesco Severi also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Francesco Severi, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Francesco seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Severi may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself. Moreover, he may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
Francesco Severi has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Severi can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Severi. Francesco probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
Francesco Severi has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Francesco has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
Francesco Severi tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Severi bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
