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 Belafonte comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Harry Belafonte - 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 Belafonte" 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 Belafonte wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Harry Belafonte is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Harry Belafonte has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Belafonte can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Harry Belafonte enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Harry never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Harry Belafonte has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Belafonte may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Harry Belafonte responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Harry does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Belafonte will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Belafonte's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Harry Belafonte becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Harry Belafonte tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Harry Belafonte 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, Harry may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Harry Belafonte has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Harry Belafonte often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Harry Belafonte has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Harry will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Belafonte can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Harry Belafonte appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Belafonte understands their feelings or their personal situations.
