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 Capra comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frank Capra - 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 Capra" 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 Capra 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Frank Capra is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Frank 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 Capra's way of dealing with problems.
Frank Capra 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 Capra's emotional balance and well-being.
Frank Capra is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Frank Capra probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Capra's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Capra, 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 Capra's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Capra will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Frank Capra overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Capra'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 Frank through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Capra's more rational friends. Frank Capra certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Frank Capra 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 Frank Capra 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.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Frank Capra could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Capra may wish he was not so easy to read.
Frank Capra is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Frank Capra tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
Frank Capra has a kind and loving nature and he radiates friendliness and warmth wherever he goes. Because of his obliging and cordial manner, Capra is likely to have many harmonious relationships with others.
Frank Capra seems to float between the worlds and prefers to live in a world of illusion rather than reality. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Frank Capra should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
