approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ralph's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ralph Fiennes comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ralph Fiennes - 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 Ralph Fiennes" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ralph a little better. This page describes the disguise Fiennes wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ralph Fiennes meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Ralph projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Fiennes is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Ralph Fiennes may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Fiennes is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Ralph to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Ralph Fiennes feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Fiennes' forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Ralph Fiennes it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Ralph Fiennes is not a follower. Others see Ralph as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Fiennes presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Ralph Fiennes has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Ralph Fiennes often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Ralph Fiennes does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Ralph's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
He may find it difficult to get ahead because Ralph lacks the vitality to do so. Ralph Fiennes tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining himself too much. Quite often, though, his plans just seem to hang in the air.
