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 Owen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Michael Owen - 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 Owen" 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 Owen 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 Owen always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Owen will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Michael Owen 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 Owen also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Owen's environment is very important to Owen.
Owen 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 Owen 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 Owen as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Owen 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 also possesses a lot of aggressive or combative energy, which could be channeled into the martial arts, or some form of disciplined athletic activity, with an emphasis on precision, form, and perfection of skills. Also, he is apt to wield his pen (or tongue) in an aggressive pointed manner! Michael Owen has to try and overcome his tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Michael Owen radiates a sense of good will, optimism, and trust, which inspires hope in other people. His presence has a healing effect on others even without Owen's awareness. Though Owen appears modest and content in a humble position, he has a sense of inner greatness or worthiness that is unmistakable. Michael Owen also has a balance of confidence and humility, of faith and caution, that makes him very appealing to others and he has many more admirers than he realizes.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Michael Owen 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 Owen believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. His relationships tend to be very harmonious and his participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
His pleasant and friendly disposition enables Michael Owen to come in quick personal relationships with other people. He enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to his environment.
