approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Pablo's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Pablo Casals comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pablo Casals - 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 Pablo Casals" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Pablo a little better. This page describes the disguise Casals wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Pablo Casals 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. Casals 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 Pablo does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Pablo Casals 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. Casals will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Pablo dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Casals admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Pablo Casals befriends someone, Casals 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 - Pablo expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Pablo Casals 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.
Pablo Casals has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Pablo always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Pablo Casals 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 Pablo more than anything else. Pablo Casals feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Pablo Casals identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever he wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Pablo Casals as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Pablo into trouble. Pablo Casals tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Pablo Casals needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Pablo Casals which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Pablo he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Casals sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Pablo Casals may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Pablo should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Pablo Casals seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Casals is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Pablo Casals makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Casals. Pablo Casals appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Pablo Casals seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
