approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Harold's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Harold Stassen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Harold Stassen - 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 Harold Stassen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Harold a little better. This page describes the disguise Stassen wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Harold Stassen is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Harold tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Stassen's way of dealing with problems.
Harold Stassen may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Stassen's emotional balance and well-being.
Harold Stassen is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Harold Stassen probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Stassen's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Stassen, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Stassen's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Stassen will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Harold Stassen overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Stassen's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Harold through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Stassen's more rational friends. Harold Stassen certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Harold Stassen has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Harold Stassen to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Harold Stassen comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Stassen is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Harold Stassen which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Harold is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Harold Stassen needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
He is assertive and bold. Harold Stassen is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Harold generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Harold Stassen's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Harold Stassen changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Stassen is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
