approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Prince's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Prince comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Prince - 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 Prince" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Prince a little better. This page describes the disguise Prince Nelson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Prince Nelson's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Prince wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Prince wants, Prince usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Prince wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Prince functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Prince usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Prince Nelson approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Prince also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Prince Nelson. When Prince commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Prince is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Prince as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Prince also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
The image that Prince projects to the world and the person he really is inside are considerably different. So much so that at times Prince may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Prince Nelson makes may actually be misleading. There is also much complexity and tension within him, and Prince often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of himself.
