approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Parker's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Parker Stevenson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Parker Stevenson - 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 Parker Stevenson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Parker a little better. This page describes the disguise Stevenson 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, Parker Stevenson always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Stevenson will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Parker Stevenson 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. Parker Stevenson also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Stevenson's environment is very important to Stevenson.
Stevenson 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. Parker Stevenson 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, Parker rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Parker Stevenson as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Stevenson 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. Parker 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 may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Parker Stevenson seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Parker tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Parker Stevenson appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Parker Stevenson may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Parker Stevenson seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Stevenson is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
He is assertive and bold. Parker Stevenson is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Parker generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Parker Stevenson's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Parker Stevenson changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Stevenson is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
