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 Hamlin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Harry Hamlin - 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 Hamlin" 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 Hamlin 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, Harry Hamlin always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hamlin will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Harry Hamlin 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. Harry Hamlin also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Hamlin's environment is very important to Hamlin.
Hamlin 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. Harry Hamlin 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, Harry rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Harry Hamlin as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Hamlin 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. Harry 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.
He also possesses a lot of aggressive or combative energy, which could be channeled into the martial arts, or some form of disciplined athletic activity, with an emphasis on precision, form, and perfection of skills. Also, he is apt to wield his pen (or tongue) in an aggressive pointed manner! Harry Hamlin has to try and overcome his tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Harry Hamlin comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Hamlin is unreliable.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Hamlin always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Harry Hamlin takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
