approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Henry's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Henry Fonda comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Henry Fonda - 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 Henry Fonda" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Henry a little better. This page describes the disguise Fonda 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, Henry Fonda always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Fonda will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Henry Fonda 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. Henry Fonda also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Fonda's environment is very important to Fonda.
Fonda 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. Henry Fonda 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, Henry rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Henry Fonda as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Fonda 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. Henry 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.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Henry Fonda which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Henry he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Fonda 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 though, Henry Fonda may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Henry should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Henry Fonda seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Fonda is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
He is assertive and bold. Henry Fonda is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Henry 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, Henry Fonda's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
