approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Pete's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Pete Rose comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pete Rose - 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 Pete Rose" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Pete a little better. This page describes the disguise Rose wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Pete Rose meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Pete projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Rose is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Pete Rose may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Rose is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Pete to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Pete Rose feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Rose's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Pete Rose it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Pete Rose is not a follower. Others see Pete as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Rose presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Pete has an adept and competent manner and the ability to express himself well. Pete Rose likes to be in touch with people and is eager to share his views with them. His ability to give and receive mental stimulation invites many fruitful conversations and relationships.
