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 André comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter André - 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 André" 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 André wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Peter André 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. Peter 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. André tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to André.
André 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, Peter André 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 Peter'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 Peter 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. Peter André empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Peter André 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. Peter André communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Peter never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Peter learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises Peter André seems childish and needy. When he is in smoother waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Peter André likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, André may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is André's challenge.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Peter André which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Peter he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. André 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 though, Peter André may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Peter should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Peter André radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore André when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Peter's personality. André can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Peter André may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", André must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Peter André is. On the other hand, Peter André may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Peter has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of his family environment. He throws himself wholeheartedly into all his affairs, does not like others to make demands on him, but Peter André will willingly give of his in most situations.
Peter André has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for André to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Peter André has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
