approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Franz's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Franz Liszt comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Franz Liszt - 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 Franz Liszt" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Franz a little better. This page describes the disguise Liszt wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Franz Liszt 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. Liszt 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 Franz does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Franz Liszt 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. Liszt will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Franz dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Liszt admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Franz Liszt befriends someone, Liszt 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 - Franz expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Franz Liszt 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.
Franz Liszt has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Franz always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Franz Liszt 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 Franz more than anything else. Franz Liszt feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Franz Liszt can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Franz that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Liszt is around.
Franz Liszt has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Franz coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Franz Liszt is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Liszt seems to need others' approval first.
Franz Liszt 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 Franz Liszt should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
