approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Rick Fox comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rick Fox - 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 Rick Fox" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rick a little better. This page describes the disguise Fox wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Rick Fox will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Rick has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Rick Fox very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Fox is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Rick Fox will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Fox's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Rick Fox appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Fox is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Rick possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Rick Fox - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Rick Fox does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Rick.
Others see Rick Fox as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Fox shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Rick Fox usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Fox may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Rick quite a bit.
