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 Michael comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner George Michael - 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 Michael" 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 Michael wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
George Michael appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. George has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Michael tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Michael.
Michael approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, George Michael is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color George's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for George and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. George Michael empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and George Michael is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. George Michael communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
George never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
George Michael has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, George will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Michael can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about George Michael which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, George is able to say or do just the right thing for them. George Michael needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Michael's intellect and his emotions are well balanced. George has the ability to manage his feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about him. George Michael likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
