approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gotham's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gotham Chopra comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gotham Chopra - 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 Gotham Chopra" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gotham a little better. This page describes the disguise Chopra wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Gotham Chopra 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. Gotham 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. Chopra tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Chopra.
Chopra 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, Gotham Chopra 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 Gotham'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 Gotham 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. Gotham Chopra empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Gotham Chopra 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. Gotham Chopra communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Gotham never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Gotham Chopra which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Gotham is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Chopra sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Gotham Chopra may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Gotham should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Gotham Chopra radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Chopra when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Gotham Chopra comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Chopra infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Gotham Chopra does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Gotham Chopra has a strong desire to build an image that captivates everyone around him, and with his attractive and fascinating personality, he has the ability to influence many people. Gotham is likely to have some unusual love affairs.
Gotham Chopra tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Chopra comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
