approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gerard's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gerard Malanga comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gerard Malanga - 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 Gerard Malanga" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gerard a little better. This page describes the disguise Malanga 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, Gerard Malanga always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Malanga will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Gerard Malanga 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. Gerard Malanga also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Malanga's environment is very important to Malanga.
Malanga 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. Gerard Malanga 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, Gerard rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Gerard Malanga as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Malanga 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. Gerard 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.
Malanga 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; Gerard Malanga may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Gerard appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
Gerard Malanga has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. He is very sensitive and his emotional state depends a lot on the influence of his immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason, others may see Gerard as a somewhat unstable person.
