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 Holm comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Holm - 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 Holm" 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 Holm wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Peter Holm always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Holm will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Peter Holm has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Peter Holm also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Holm's environment is very important to Holm.
Holm steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Peter Holm tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Peter rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Peter Holm as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Holm has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Peter may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Peter Holm 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, Peter Holm often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Peter Holm comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Holm tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Peter has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Peter Holm is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Holm must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Peter Holm tends to be somewhat insecure in his relationships with other people and he strives for safety and security in his life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Peter, and he has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
