approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ned's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ned Brower comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ned Brower - 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 Ned Brower" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ned a little better. This page describes the disguise Brower wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Ned Brower is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Ned tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Brower's way of dealing with problems.
Ned Brower may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Brower's emotional balance and well-being.
Ned Brower is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Ned Brower probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Brower's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Brower, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Brower's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Brower will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Ned Brower overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Brower's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Ned through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Brower's more rational friends. Ned Brower certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Ned Brower has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Ned Brower to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Ned Brower 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, Ned may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
Ned Brower is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Ned Brower tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
Ned has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Ned Brower is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Brower must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Ned Brower comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Brower infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Ned Brower does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Ned Brower changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Brower is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
He is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of his environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Ned Brower has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success will likely to be his.
