approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lou's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Lou Ferrigno comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lou Ferrigno - 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 Lou Ferrigno" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lou a little better. This page describes the disguise Ferrigno wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Lou Ferrigno always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Ferrigno will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Lou Ferrigno has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Lou Ferrigno also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Ferrigno's environment is very important to Ferrigno.
Ferrigno steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Lou Ferrigno tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Lou rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Lou Ferrigno as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Ferrigno has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Lou may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Lou Ferrigno can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Lou that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Ferrigno is around.
Lou Ferrigno appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Ferrigno is unreliable.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Ferrigno always have something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Lou Ferrigno takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep along others.
Lou Ferrigno has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for Ferrigno to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Lou Ferrigno tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Lou does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
