approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Frederick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Frederick Chopin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Frederick Chopin - 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 Frederick Chopin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Frederick a little better. This page describes the disguise Chopin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Frederick Chopin always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Chopin will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Frederick Chopin has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Frederick Chopin also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Chopin's environment is very important to Chopin.
Chopin steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Frederick Chopin tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Frederick rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Frederick Chopin as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Chopin has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Frederick may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Chopin draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; Frederick Chopin may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Frederick appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
At times Frederick Chopin comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Chopin's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Frederick Chopin irresistibly.
Frederick Chopin appears 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, Chopin may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Frederick fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Frederick Chopin is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Frederick Chopin appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Chopin understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Frederick Chopin really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Frederick Chopin appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Chopin is unreliable.
