approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ludwig's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ludwig Wittgenstein comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ludwig Wittgenstein - 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 Ludwig Wittgenstein" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ludwig a little better. This page describes the disguise Wittgenstein 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 Wittgenstein's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Ludwig Wittgenstein wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Ludwig Wittgenstein wants, Ludwig Wittgenstein usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Ludwig 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. Ludwig Wittgenstein 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. Ludwig Wittgenstein usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Wittgenstein approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Ludwig Wittgenstein 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 Wittgenstein. When Ludwig Wittgenstein 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, Ludwig Wittgenstein 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 Ludwig Wittgenstein as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Ludwig Wittgenstein also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Ludwig Wittgenstein likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Wittgenstein may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Wittgenstein's challenge.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 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 Wittgenstein to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Ludwig Wittgenstein has a hypnotizing effect on people in his surroundings and others see him as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Ludwig has a strong desire to mentally dominate his relationships, and with his ability to out-talk anyone, he can sway them to his opinions.
Ludwig Wittgenstein seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
Ludwig Wittgenstein has a strong desire to build an image of his that captivates everyone around him, and with his attractive and fascinating personality, he has the ability to influence many people. Ludwig is likely to have some unusual love affairs.
