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 Sarsgaard comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Sarsgaard - 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 Sarsgaard" 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 Sarsgaard wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Peter Sarsgaard 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. Sarsgaard tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Sarsgaard.
Sarsgaard 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 Sarsgaard 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 Sarsgaard 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 Sarsgaard 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 Sarsgaard 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 way Peter Sarsgaard comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of his character. Specifically, what gives Peter pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Sarsgaard's outward demeanor. Peter Sarsgaard seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Sarsgaard do things that go against his better judgment. Even Peter's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Peter Sarsgaard needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Peter's personality. Sarsgaard can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Peter Sarsgaard 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", Sarsgaard must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Peter Sarsgaard is. On the other hand, Peter Sarsgaard may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Sarsgaard is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and he strives for a pleasant life. He likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to his fellow man. It makes Peter Sarsgaard happy to be involved in many relationships and he is very sympathetic toward everyone.
Peter Sarsgaard seems to enjoy projecting a different image of himself to others, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
