approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Franco's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Franco Nero comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Franco Nero - 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 Franco Nero" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Franco a little better. This page describes the disguise Nero wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Franco Nero likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Nero must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Franco does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Franco Nero also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Nero will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Franco dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Nero admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Franco Nero befriends someone, Nero is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Franco expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Franco Nero often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Franco Nero has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Franco always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Franco Nero also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Franco more than anything else. Franco Nero feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Franco Nero tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Franco does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Franco learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises Franco Nero seems childish and needy. When he is in smoother waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
He projects himself with vigor and energy and impresses others with the force of his personality. His will-power probably was developed early in life and Franco Nero takes control of whatever situation he is involved in.
