approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Peter's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Peter Buck comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Buck - 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 Peter Buck" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Peter a little better. This page describes the disguise Buck wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Peter 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. Peter Buck 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. Peter Buck 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. Peter Buck 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. Peter Buck has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Peter Buck 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 Peter 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 Peter Buck 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. Buck 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 Peter Buck 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.
All of the above, while true of Peter Buck much of the time, is substantially tempered by a distinct tendency for caution, self-control, and seriousness. While he is idealistic, philosophical, and insightful, Peter also seeks order and structure in his philosophical pursuits in order to clearly formulate his ideals into a particular system. Peter can become overly concerned with his beliefs and rather abstract and removed from everyday life. Peter Buck has a mature demeanor and he appears wise to other people.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Peter Buck which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Peter is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Buck 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, Peter Buck may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Peter should avoid always looking on the dark side.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Peter Buck is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Peter radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Peter Buck comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Buck infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Peter Buck does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Peter Buck makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Buck. Peter Buck appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Buck projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Peter Buck generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Peter Buck emanates.
Peter has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairstyle and general appearance. Peter has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
Peter Buck is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, Buck also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Peter Buck does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
Peter Buck tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
