approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Madcap Maxie's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Max Baer comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Max Baer - 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 Max Baer" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Madcap Maxie a little better. This page describes the disguise Baer wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Max Baer will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Madcap Maxie has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Max Baer very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Baer is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Max Baer will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Baer's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Max Baer appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Baer is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Madcap Maxie possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Max Baer - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Max Baer does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Madcap Maxie.
Others see Max Baer as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Baer shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Max Baer usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Max Baer radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Baer when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Max Baer that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Baer tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
He is assertive and bold. Max Baer is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Madcap Maxie generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Max Baer's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Max Baer 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.
