approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Gustave's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Gustave Kahn comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Gustave Kahn - 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 Gustave Kahn" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Gustave a little better. This page describes the disguise Kahn wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Gustave Kahn is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Kahn sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Gustave's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Gustave Kahn himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Gustave Kahn is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Gustave Kahn is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Kahn probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Kahn's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Gustave Kahn as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Gustave does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Gustave Kahn is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Gustave Kahn is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Gustave Kahn needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Kahn's work or outside social activities.
Gustave Kahn seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Gustave may appear standoffish, as if he judges them from afar.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Gustave Kahn could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Kahn may wish he was not so easy to read.
Gustave Kahn can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Gustave that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Kahn is around.
He is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for his efforts. Gustave Kahn may even achieve a degree of celebrity in his sphere and would make an excellent politician.
