approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Larry's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Larry Pressler comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Larry Pressler - 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 Larry Pressler" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Larry a little better. This page describes the disguise Pressler wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Pressler's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Larry Pressler wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Larry Pressler wants, Larry Pressler usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Larry wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Larry Pressler functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Larry Pressler usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Pressler approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Larry Pressler also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Pressler. When Larry Pressler commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Larry Pressler is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Larry Pressler as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Larry Pressler also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Larry Pressler which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Larry is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Pressler 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, Larry Pressler may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Larry should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Others may see Larry as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Larry Pressler may feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Pressler always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Larry Pressler takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
