approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Francis' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Francis Crick comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Francis Crick - 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 Francis Crick" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Francis a little better. This page describes the disguise Crick wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Francis Crick always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Crick will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Francis Crick has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Francis Crick also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Crick's environment is very important to Crick.
Crick steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Francis Crick tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Francis rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Francis Crick as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Crick has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Francis may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Francis Crick often finds himself in the role of supportive caretaker, assistant, or facilitator of others' creative efforts and projects. Though seemingly unemotional and poised, he cares deeply and has a very strong nurturing urge, which Francis expresses in tangible ways such as running errands for sick friends or nursing them back to health.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Francis Crick seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Francis tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Francis has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of his family environment. He throws himself wholeheartedly into all his affairs, does not like others to make demands on him, but Francis Crick will willingly give of his in most situations.
