approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Raymond's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Raymond Radiguet comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Raymond Radiguet - 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 Raymond Radiguet" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Raymond a little better. This page describes the disguise Radiguet 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 Radiguet's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Raymond Radiguet wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Raymond Radiguet wants, Raymond Radiguet usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Raymond 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. Raymond Radiguet 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. Raymond Radiguet usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Radiguet approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Raymond Radiguet 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 Radiguet. When Raymond Radiguet 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, Raymond Radiguet 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 Raymond Radiguet as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Raymond Radiguet also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Raymond Radiguet seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Radiguet is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Raymond that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Raymond Radiguet may be on the surface, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Raymond has causes, passions, or desires that drive him and when one of these is aroused Radiguet is quite zealous in his pursuit or defense of it.
Radiguet strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Raymond Radiguet spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
