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 Doran comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frank Doran - 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 Doran" 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 Doran 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 Doran's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Frank Doran wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Frank Doran wants, Frank Doran usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Frank 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. Frank Doran 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. Frank Doran usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Doran approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Frank Doran 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 Doran. When Frank Doran 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, Frank Doran 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 Frank Doran as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Frank Doran also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Frank Doran comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Doran may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Frank is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Frank Doran's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Doran projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Frank Doran generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Frank Doran emanates.
The initial impression Doran makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Frank thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Frank Doran may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Frank Doran tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Frank Doran does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Frank's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Doran always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Frank Doran takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
Frank Doran has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
He is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in his environment. His eternal optimism brings Frank Doran the affinity of many people with whom he will have many joyful experiences.
Doran strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Frank Doran spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
