approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Oliver's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Oliver Bierhoff comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Oliver Bierhoff - 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 Oliver Bierhoff" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Oliver a little better. This page describes the disguise Bierhoff 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, Oliver Bierhoff always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Bierhoff will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Oliver Bierhoff 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. Oliver Bierhoff also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Bierhoff's environment is very important to Bierhoff.
Bierhoff 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. Oliver Bierhoff 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, Oliver rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Oliver Bierhoff as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Bierhoff 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. Oliver 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 is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Oliver Bierhoff tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Oliver does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Oliver Bierhoff radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Bierhoff when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Oliver's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Oliver Bierhoff also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Bierhoff needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
Bierhoff may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself. Moreover, he may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
