approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Robert's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Robert Plant comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Robert Plant - 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 Robert Plant" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Robert a little better. This page describes the disguise Plant wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Robert loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Robert Plant has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Robert Plant tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Robert Plant loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Robert Plant has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Robert Plant cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Robert and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Robert Plant gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Plant likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Robert Plant as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.

Robert Plant appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Plant may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Robert fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Robert Plant is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Robert Plant does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people.
