approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Howard's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Howard Hughes comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Howard Hughes - 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 Howard Hughes" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Howard a little better. This page describes the disguise Hughes 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, Howard Hughes always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hughes will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Howard Hughes 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. Howard Hughes also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Hughes' environment is very important to Hughes.
Hughes 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. Howard Hughes 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, Howard rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Howard Hughes as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Hughes 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. Howard 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.
Howard Hughes radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Hughes when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Howard Hughes appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Hughes infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Howard Hughes does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
