approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Martin's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Martin Scorsese comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Martin Scorsese - 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 Martin Scorsese" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Martin a little better. This page describes the disguise Scorsese wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Martin Scorsese likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Scorsese must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Martin does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Martin Scorsese also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Scorsese will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Martin dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Scorsese admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Martin Scorsese befriends someone, Scorsese is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Martin expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Martin Scorsese often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Martin Scorsese has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Martin always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Martin Scorsese also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Martin more than anything else. Martin Scorsese feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Martin Scorsese has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Martin Scorsese often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Martin Scorsese appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Martin Scorsese may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Martin Scorsese tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and he may feel that he has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by his surroundings. Scorsese is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
