approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Marc's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Marc Anthony comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Marc Anthony - 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 Marc Anthony" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Marc a little better. This page describes the disguise Anthony 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 Anthony's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Marc Anthony wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Marc Anthony wants, Marc Anthony usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Marc 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. Marc Anthony 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. Marc Anthony usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Anthony approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Marc Anthony 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 Anthony. When Marc Anthony 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, Marc Anthony 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 Marc Anthony as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Marc Anthony also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Marc Anthony seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Marc Anthony has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Marc Anthony has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Marc into trouble. Marc Anthony tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Marc Anthony needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Marc Anthony can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Marc 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 Anthony is around.
Marc Anthony 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 Anthony is unreliable.
Marc has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Marc's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Anthony may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Marc quite a bit.
Marc Anthony 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 Anthony to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
