approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kenneth's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kenneth Lay comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kenneth Lay - 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 Kenneth Lay" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kenneth a little better. This page describes the disguise Lay wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Kenneth Lay will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Kenneth has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Kenneth Lay very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Lay is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Kenneth Lay will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Lay's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Kenneth Lay appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Lay is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Kenneth possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Kenneth Lay - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Kenneth Lay does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Kenneth.
Others see Kenneth Lay as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Lay shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Kenneth Lay usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Kenneth 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 Kenneth's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Others are attracted to Lay because of his light-hearted, cheerful and optimistic personality. Very charming, Kenneth Lay is likely to give frequent compliments. He is very affectionate toward others and has a need to be in active relationships with people.
