Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Neil Kinnock" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Neil a little better. This page describes the disguise Baron Kinnock wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Neil Kinnock 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. Baron Kinnock 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 Neil does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Neil Kinnock 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.

He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Neil expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Neil Kinnock 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.

Neil always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable.
