approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ian's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ian Fleming comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ian Fleming - 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 Ian Fleming" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ian a little better. This page describes the disguise Fleming 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 Ian Fleming 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. Fleming 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 Ian'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, Ian Fleming 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. Ian Fleming 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, Ian Fleming is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Fleming probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Fleming's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Ian Fleming as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Ian 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.
Ian Fleming is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Ian Fleming is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Ian Fleming 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 Fleming's work or outside social activities.
Ian Fleming appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he had their best interest at heart. Because others view Fleming as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek his counsel.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Ian Fleming could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Fleming may wish he were not so easy to read.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Ian's personality. Fleming can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Ian Fleming may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Fleming must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Ian Fleming is. On the other hand, Ian Fleming may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
