approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Max's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Max Linder comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Max Linder - 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 Linder" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Max a little better. This page describes the disguise Linder 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 Linder 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. Max has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Max Linder very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Linder is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Max Linder will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Linder'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 Linder 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 Linder is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Max 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 Linder - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Max Linder 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 Max.
Others see Max Linder as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Linder 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 Linder usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Max Linder could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Linder may wish he were not so easy to read.
Max Linder 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. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Max Linder may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
He is assertive and bold. Max Linder is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Max 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 Linder's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Max's personality. Linder can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Max Linder may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Linder must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Max Linder is. On the other hand, Max Linder may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Others are attracted to Linder because of his light-hearted, cheerful and optimistic personality. Max Linder is very charming and is likely to give frequent compliments. He is very affectionate toward others and has a need to be in active relationships with people.
Max has good organization skills and he knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in teamwork and adept at negotiating, he can lead successful business meetings. Max Linder can easily obtain all the information he needs in order to make the best deal.
Max Linder has a very congenial personality and is at peace and harmony with the world around him. His personal relationships tend to be very harmonious and Max is likely to find great satisfaction and fulfillment in love as well.
