approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ricky's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ricky Ullman comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ricky Ullman - 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 Ricky Ullman" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ricky a little better. This page describes the disguise Ricky Ullman wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ricky Ullman has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Ricky Ullman as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Ricky does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Ricky Ullman is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Ricky Ullman can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Ricky Ullman has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Ricky Ullman appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Ricky often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Ricky is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Ricky Ullman's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Ricky Ullman has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Ricky Ullman is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
He may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Ricky Ullman likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Ricky Ullman may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Ricky Ullman's challenge.
Ricky Ullman has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Ricky will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Ricky Ullman can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Ricky Ullman 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 Ricky's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
Ricky Ullman tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Ricky does his duty, expects the same of others, and has no pity for anyone.
