approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lionel's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Lionel Roux comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lionel Roux - 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 Lionel Roux" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lionel a little better. This page describes the disguise Roux wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Lionel Roux 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. Roux 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 Lionel does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Lionel Roux 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. Roux will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Lionel dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Roux admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Lionel Roux befriends someone, Roux 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 - Lionel expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Lionel Roux 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.
Lionel Roux has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Lionel always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Lionel Roux 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 Lionel more than anything else. Lionel Roux feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Lionel Roux appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he had their best interest at heart. Because others view Roux as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek his counsel.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Lionel Roux which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Lionel is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Lionel Roux needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Lionel has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Lionel's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
