H. G. Wells
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Herbert's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Herbert George Wells comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Herbert George Wells - 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 Herbert George Wells" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Herbert a little better. This page describes the disguise Wells wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Herbert George Wells is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Wells sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Herbert's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Herbert George Wells himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Herbert George Wells is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Herbert George Wells is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Wells probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Wells' relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Herbert George Wells as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Herbert does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Herbert George Wells is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Herbert George Wells is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Herbert George Wells needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Wells' work or outside social activities.
Herbert George Wells appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Herbert George Wells may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Herbert George Wells appears 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, Wells may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Herbert fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Herbert George Wells is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Herbert George Wells which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Herbert he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Wells 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, Herbert George Wells may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Herbert should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Herbert George Wells tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Herbert George Wells is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Herbert present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
Herbert George Wells has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
Herbert George Wells tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Herbert does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
