approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Glenn's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Glenn Ford comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Glenn Ford - 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 Glenn Ford" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Glenn a little better. This page describes the disguise Ford wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Glenn Ford likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Ford must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Glenn does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Glenn Ford also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Ford will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Glenn dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Ford admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Glenn Ford befriends someone, Ford is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Glenn expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Glenn Ford often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Glenn Ford has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Glenn always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Glenn Ford also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Glenn more than anything else. Glenn Ford feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Glenn Ford seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Glenn tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Glenn Ford has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Glenn coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Glenn Ford is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Ford seems to need others' approval first.
