approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Patrick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Patrick Stump comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Patrick Stump - 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 Patrick Stump" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Patrick a little better. This page describes the disguise Stump wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Patrick Stump is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Stump sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Patrick's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Patrick Stump himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Patrick Stump is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Patrick Stump is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Stump probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Stump's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Patrick Stump as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Patrick does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Patrick Stump is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Patrick Stump is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Patrick Stump needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Stump's work or outside social activities.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Patrick Stump has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Patrick Stump often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Patrick Stump seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Patrick tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Patrick Stump which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Patrick is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Stump 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, however, Patrick Stump may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Patrick should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Patrick Stump has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Patrick has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Patrick Stump changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Stump is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Patrick Stump tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
