approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Laurence's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Laurence Olivier comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Laurence Olivier - 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 Laurence Olivier" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Laurence a little better. This page describes the disguise Olivier wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Laurence Olivier is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Laurence Olivier has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Olivier can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Laurence Olivier enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Laurence never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Laurence Olivier has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Olivier may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Laurence Olivier responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Laurence does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Olivier will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Olivier's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Laurence Olivier becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Laurence Olivier tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Laurence Olivier 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 Olivier may wish he was not so easy to read.
Laurence often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Laurence Olivier and his objectives. Olivier might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
