approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Michael's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Michael Clarke comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Michael Clarke - 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 Michael Clarke" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Michael a little better. This page describes the disguise Clarke wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Michael Clarke always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Clarke will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Michael Clarke has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Michael Clarke also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Clarke's environment is very important to Clarke.
Clarke steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Michael Clarke tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Michael rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Michael Clarke as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Clarke has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Michael may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Michael Clarke seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Michael tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Michael Clarke seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Clarke tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
He is self-assured and confident in dealing with others and has a positive influence on his environment. Michael Clarke is able to work well with others in a team effort, and advantages through other people could come to him frequently.
