approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gregory's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gregory Smith comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gregory Smith - 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 Gregory Smith" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gregory a little better. This page describes the disguise Smith 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, Gregory Smith always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Smith will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Gregory Smith 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. Gregory Smith also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Smith's environment is very important to Smith.
Smith 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. Gregory Smith 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, Gregory rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Gregory Smith as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Smith 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. Gregory 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.
Gregory Smith is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities.

He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.

At the same time Gregory Smith really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
