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 Howson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frank Howson - 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 Howson" 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 Howson 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 Howson's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Frank Howson wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Frank Howson wants, Frank Howson 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 Howson 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 Howson usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Howson approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Frank Howson 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 Howson. When Frank Howson 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 Howson 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 Howson as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Frank Howson also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Frank Howson tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Frank Howson appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Frank Howson may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Frank Howson appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Howson understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Frank Howson really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Frank Howson tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Howson bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
