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 Hawkes comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Hawkes - 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 Hawkes" 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 Hawkes wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, John loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. John Hawkes has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. John Hawkes tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. John Hawkes loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. John Hawkes has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, John Hawkes cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon John and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes John Hawkes gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Hawkes likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see John Hawkes as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
John Hawkes 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. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case John Hawkes may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about John Hawkes which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that John is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Hawkes 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, however, John Hawkes may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. John should avoid always looking on the dark side.
He is assertive and bold. John Hawkes is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. John generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, John Hawkes' boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
His family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to John's personality. Somewhat insecure, John Hawkes may feel that others restrain him. He has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
