approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kurt's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kurt Gödel comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kurt Gödel - 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 Kurt Gödel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kurt a little better. This page describes the disguise Gödel wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Kurt Gödel likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Gödel must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Kurt does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Kurt Gödel also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Gödel will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Kurt dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Gödel admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Kurt Gödel befriends someone, Gödel is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Kurt expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Kurt Gödel often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Kurt Gödel has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Kurt always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Kurt Gödel also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Kurt more than anything else. Kurt Gödel feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Kurt Gödel 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. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Kurt Gödel may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Kurt 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 Kurt's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
