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 Rozelle comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pete Rozelle - 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 Rozelle" 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 Rozelle wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Pete Rozelle appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Pete has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Rozelle tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Rozelle.
Rozelle approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Pete Rozelle is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Pete's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Pete and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Pete Rozelle empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Pete Rozelle is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Pete Rozelle communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Pete never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Pete Rozelle tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Pete does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Pete Rozelle could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Rozelle may wish he was not so easy to read.
Pete Rozelle radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Rozelle when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
The way Pete Rozelle comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Pete pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Rozelle's outward demeanor. Pete Rozelle seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
