approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gregg's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gregg Araki comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gregg Araki - 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 Gregg Araki" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gregg a little better. This page describes the disguise Araki wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Gregg Araki 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. Araki 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 Gregg does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Gregg Araki 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. Araki will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Gregg dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Araki admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Gregg Araki befriends someone, Araki 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 - Gregg expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Gregg Araki 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.
Gregg Araki has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Gregg always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Gregg Araki 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 Gregg more than anything else. Gregg Araki feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Although there is a part of Gregg Araki that really enjoys attention and showing off, he is extremely sensitive to criticism and will withdraw unless he has a lot of supportive backing. Without a family behind him (or someone that cares for him a great deal), Gregg falters, but with their support he is able to do great things.
Gregg Araki has a very congenial personality and is at peace and harmony with the world around him. His personal relationships tend to be very harmonious and Gregg is likely to find great satisfaction and fulfillment in love as well.
Gregg Araki seems to float between the worlds and prefers to live in a world of illusion rather than reality. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Gregg Araki should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
