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 Landon comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Michael Landon - 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 Landon" 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 Landon wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Michael Landon frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Landon, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Michael does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Michael Landon seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Michael dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Landon likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Michael Landon respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Landon's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Michael Landon has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Michael Landon spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Michael exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Landon shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Michael Landon 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.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Michael Landon is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Michael radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Michael Landon which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Michael is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Michael Landon needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Michael Landon has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, his emotional state depends a lot on the influence of his immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason others may see Michael as a somewhat unstable person.
