approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Frank's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Frank Gifford comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frank Gifford - 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 Frank Gifford" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Frank a little better. This page describes the disguise Gifford wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Frank Gifford appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Frank has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Gifford tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Gifford.
Gifford approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Frank Gifford is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Frank's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Frank and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Frank Gifford empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Frank Gifford is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Frank Gifford communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.

Frank Gifford comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Gifford tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Frank Gifford makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Gifford.
