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 Raft comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner George Raft - 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 Raft" 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 Raft wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, George loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. George Raft has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. George Raft tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. George Raft loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. George Raft has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, George Raft cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon George and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes George Raft gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Raft likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see George Raft as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of George Raft, especially through his pity or sympathy. If George seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
At times George Raft comes across as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships that are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality to Raft's demeanor that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to George Raft irresistibly.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. George Raft changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Raft is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
