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 North comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter North - 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 North" 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 North wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Peter North likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. North must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Peter does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Peter North also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. North will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Peter dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
North admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Peter North befriends someone, North is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Peter expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Peter North often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Peter North has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Peter always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Peter North also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Peter more than anything else. Peter North feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Peter North seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Peter tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.

He is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Peter North needs his freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Peter has a strong desire to exceed his limits, even if it means having to use force.
