approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Harry's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Harry Reems comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Harry Reems - 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 Harry Reems" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Harry a little better. This page describes the disguise Reems wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Reems' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Harry Reems wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Harry Reems wants, Harry Reems usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Harry wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Harry Reems functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Harry Reems usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Reems approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Harry Reems also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Reems. When Harry Reems commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Harry Reems is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Harry Reems as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Harry Reems also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Harry Reems comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Reems may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Harry is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Harry Reems' confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Harry Reems which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Harry is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Reems 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, Harry Reems may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Harry should avoid always looking on the dark side.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Harry Reems is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Harry radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Harry Reems feels good about himself and enjoys good relationships with his friends and neighbors. He exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, and he is always willing to learn more about himself, the world and other people.
Reems' intellect and emotions are well balanced. Harry has the ability to manage his feelings superbly and has a cautious, adaptable and open way about him. Harry Reems likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
Others are attracted to Reems because of his light-hearted, cheerful and optimistic personality. Harry Reems is very charming and is likely to give frequent compliments. He is very affectionate toward others and has a need to be in active relationships with people.
