approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Hugh's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Hugh Hefner comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Hugh Hefner - 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 Hugh Hefner" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Hugh a little better. This page describes the disguise Hefner 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, Hugh Hefner always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hefner will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Hugh Hefner 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. Hugh Hefner also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Hefner's environment is very important to Hefner.
Hefner 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. Hugh Hefner 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, Hugh rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Hugh Hefner as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Hefner 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. Hugh 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, unglamorous position in life.
Hefner may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Hugh Hefner is always a bit off center.
Hugh Hefner also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
Hugh Hefner appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Hugh Hefner seemed mature for his age.
Hugh Hefner has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Hefner can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Hefner. Hugh probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
