approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Omar's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Omar Sharif comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Omar Sharif - 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 Omar Sharif" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Omar a little better. This page describes the disguise Sharif wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Omar Sharif will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Omar has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Omar Sharif very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Sharif is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Omar Sharif will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Sharif's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Omar Sharif appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Sharif is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Omar possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Omar Sharif - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Omar Sharif does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Omar.
Others see Omar Sharif as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Sharif shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Omar Sharif usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Omar Sharif likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Sharif may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Sharif's challenge.
Omar Sharif appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Sharif understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Omar Sharif really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Omar has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Omar Sharif is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Sharif must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Sharif projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Omar Sharif generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Omar Sharif emanates.
Sharif would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. Omar Sharif is very impressionable, has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. He is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
Omar Sharif loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Sharif is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy to him.
