approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gordon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gordon Brown comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gordon Brown - 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 Gordon Brown" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gordon a little better. This page describes the disguise Brown wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Gordon Brown meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Gordon projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Brown is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Gordon Brown may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Brown is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Gordon to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Gordon Brown feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Brown's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Gordon Brown it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Gordon Brown is not a follower. Others see Gordon as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Brown presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Gordon Brown, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Gordon seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
Gordon Brown appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Brown understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Gordon Brown really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.

Moreover, Brown tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Gordon Brown comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him and cannot resist commenting about them.
