approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Pietro's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Pietro Badoglio comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pietro Badoglio - 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 Pietro Badoglio" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Pietro a little better. This page describes the disguise Badoglio wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Pietro Badoglio 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. Badoglio 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 Pietro does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Pietro Badoglio 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. Badoglio will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Pietro dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Badoglio admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Pietro Badoglio befriends someone, Badoglio 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 - Pietro expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Pietro Badoglio 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.
Pietro Badoglio has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Pietro always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Pietro Badoglio 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 Pietro more than anything else. Pietro Badoglio feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Pietro Badoglio can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Pietro that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Badoglio is around.
Badoglio may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Pietro quite a bit.
Pietro Badoglio loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Badoglio is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
