Prince Charles of Wales
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Charles' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Prince Charles comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Prince Charles - 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 Charles" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Charles a little better. This page describes the disguise Windsor wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Prince Charles 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. Windsor 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 Charles does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Prince Charles 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. Windsor will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Charles dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Windsor admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Prince Charles befriends someone, Windsor 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 - Charles expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Prince Charles 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.
Prince Charles has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Charles always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Prince Charles 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 Charles more than anything else. Prince Charles feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Prince Charles could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Windsor may wish he was not so easy to read.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Prince Charles seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Charles tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Prince Charles loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Windsor is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
