approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mike's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mike Myers comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mike Myers - 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 Mike Myers" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mike a little better. This page describes the disguise Myers wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Mike Myers likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Myers must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Mike does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Mike Myers also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Myers will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Mike dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Myers admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Mike Myers befriends someone, Myers is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Mike expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Mike Myers often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Mike Myers has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Mike always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Mike Myers also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Mike more than anything else. Mike Myers feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Mike Myers tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Mike Myers seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Mike may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Mike Myers seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Mike tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
It may be hard for Mike Myers to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Myers displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
