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 Harmon comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mark Harmon - 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 Harmon" 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 Harmon 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 Harmon's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Mark Harmon wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Mark Harmon wants, Mark Harmon usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Mark 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. Mark Harmon 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. Mark Harmon usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Harmon approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Mark Harmon 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 Harmon. When Mark Harmon 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, Mark Harmon 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 Mark Harmon as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Mark Harmon also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Mark Harmon comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him and cannot resist commenting about them.
Harmon also needs to be busy and active and he moves quickly. Mark Harmon also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
