approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of George's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way George Burns comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner George Burns - 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 George Burns" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know George a little better. This page describes the disguise Burns wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
George Burns has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Burns as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. George does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, George Burns is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Burns can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Burns has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. George Burns appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, George often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. George is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Burns' hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
George Burns has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Burns is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
George Burns seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, George may appear standoffish, as if he judges them from afar.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. George Burns seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. George tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
The way George Burns comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives George pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Burns' outward demeanor. George Burns seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
His pleasant and friendly disposition enables George Burns to come in quick personal relationships with other people. He enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to his environment.
