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 Schroder comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rick Schroder - 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 Schroder" 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 Schroder 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 Schroder 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 Schroder very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Schroder is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Rick Schroder will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Schroder'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 Schroder 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 Schroder 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 Schroder - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Rick Schroder 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 Schroder as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Schroder 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 Schroder usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Schroder draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; Rick Schroder may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Rick appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Rick Schroder could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Schroder may wish he were not so easy to read.
Rick often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally, if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Rick Schroder and his objectives. Schroder might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
Other people may consider his environment a bit strange and Schroder likes to surround himself with a certain air of mystery. Rick Schroder tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert his power from behind the scenes.
