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 Bogdanovich comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Bogdanovich - 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 Bogdanovich" 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 Bogdanovich wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Peter Bogdanovich is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Peter tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Bogdanovich's way of dealing with problems.
Peter Bogdanovich may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Bogdanovich's emotional balance and well-being.
Peter Bogdanovich is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Peter Bogdanovich probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Bogdanovich's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Bogdanovich, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Bogdanovich's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Bogdanovich will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Peter Bogdanovich overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Bogdanovich's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Peter through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Bogdanovich's more rational friends. Peter Bogdanovich certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Peter Bogdanovich has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Peter Bogdanovich to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Peter Bogdanovich has a kind and loving nature and he radiates friendliness and warmth wherever he goes. Because of his obliging and cordial manner, Bogdanovich is likely to have many harmonious relationships with others.
Peter Bogdanovich tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and he may feel that he has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by his surroundings. Bogdanovich is likely to feel hemmed in and consider dealing with others quite burdensome.
