approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Paul's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Paul Hogan comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Paul Hogan - 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 Paul Hogan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Paul a little better. This page describes the disguise Hogan wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Paul loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Paul Hogan has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Paul Hogan tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Paul Hogan loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Paul Hogan has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Paul Hogan cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Paul and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Paul Hogan gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Hogan likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Paul Hogan as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
Paul Hogan is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Paul Hogan tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
Paul Hogan comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Hogan also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Paul Hogan also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Paul Hogan has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Paul coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Paul Hogan is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Hogan seems to need others' approval first.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Paul Hogan does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Paul's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
