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 Stormare comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Stormare - 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 Stormare" 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 Stormare wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Stormare's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Peter Stormare wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Peter Stormare wants, Peter Stormare usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Peter wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Peter Stormare functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Peter Stormare usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Stormare approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Peter Stormare also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Stormare. When Peter Stormare commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Peter Stormare is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Peter Stormare as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Peter Stormare also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
In significant ways, Stormare's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Peter Stormare may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Peter Stormare is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Peter Stormare believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. His relationships tend to be very harmonious and his participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
