approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of John's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way John Agar comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Agar - 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 John Agar" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know John a little better. This page describes the disguise Agar 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, John Agar always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Agar will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
John Agar 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. John Agar also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Agar's environment is very important to Agar.
Agar 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. John Agar 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, John rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see John Agar as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Agar 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. John 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.
Agar may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that John Agar is always a bit off center.
John Agar also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
John has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in John's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, John Agar is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. John present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
