approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of René's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way René Crevel comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner René Crevel - 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 René Crevel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know René a little better. This page describes the disguise Crevel wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, René Crevel 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. Crevel 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 René does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
René Crevel 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. Crevel will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. René dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Crevel admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When René Crevel befriends someone, Crevel 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 - René expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, René Crevel 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.
René Crevel has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. René always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. René Crevel 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 René more than anything else. René Crevel feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
René Crevel appears confident and self-assured and he makes a clear, strong impression on others. He is very concerned with the impact he makes on others and with getting personal recognition, sometimes too much so. René Crevel tends to dominate in relationships and to be oblivious to others' points of view if they differ very much from Crevel's own.
René has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in René's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
He is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in his environment. His eternal optimism brings René Crevel the affinity of many people with whom he will have many joyful experiences.
