approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mark's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mark Evans comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mark Evans - 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 Mark Evans" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mark a little better. This page describes the disguise Evans wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Mark Evans has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Evans as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Mark does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Mark Evans is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Evans can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Evans has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Mark Evans appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Mark often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Mark is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Evans' hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Mark Evans has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Evans is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Mark Evans has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Mark will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Evans can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Mark Evans which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Mark he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Evans sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Mark Evans may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Mark should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Mark Evans tends to suppress his feelings and may even pretend that he does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Mark feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate himself. Others see Mark Evans as a reserved, detached and serious person.
Mark Evans has a hypnotizing effect on people in his surroundings and others see him as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Mark has a strong desire to mentally dominate his relationships, and with his ability to out-talk anyone, he can sway them to his opinions.
Mark Evans tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. Mark should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
