approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gaylord's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gaylord Hauser comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gaylord Hauser - 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 Gaylord Hauser" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gaylord a little better. This page describes the disguise Hauser 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, Gaylord Hauser always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hauser will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Gaylord Hauser 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. Gaylord Hauser also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Hauser's environment is very important to Hauser.
Hauser 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. Gaylord Hauser 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, Gaylord rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Gaylord Hauser as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Hauser 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. Gaylord 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.
Gaylord Hauser 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 Gaylord Hauser 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.
He is assertive and bold. Gaylord Hauser is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Gaylord generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Gaylord Hauser's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Gaylord Hauser 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 Hauser is unreliable.
Quite excitable and very impatient, Gaylord Hauser is ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, Hauser also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Gaylord Hauser does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
