approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lance's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Lance Rentzel comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lance Rentzel - 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 Lance Rentzel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lance a little better. This page describes the disguise Rentzel 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 Lance Rentzel 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. Rentzel 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 Lance'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, Lance Rentzel 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. Lance Rentzel 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, Lance Rentzel is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Rentzel probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Rentzel's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Lance Rentzel as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Lance 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.
Lance Rentzel is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Lance Rentzel is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Lance Rentzel 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 Rentzel's work or outside social activities.
At times Lance Rentzel comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Rentzel's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Lance Rentzel irresistibly.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Lance Rentzel could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Rentzel may wish he was not so easy to read.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Lance's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Lance Rentzel also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Rentzel needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
Lance Rentzel appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Rentzel infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Lance Rentzel does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
The way Lance Rentzel comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Lance pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Rentzel's outward demeanor. Lance Rentzel seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
