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 Taylor comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Robert Taylor - 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 Taylor" 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 Taylor wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Robert Taylor 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. Taylor 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 Robert does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Robert Taylor 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. Taylor will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Robert dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Taylor admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Robert Taylor befriends someone, Taylor 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 - Robert expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Robert Taylor 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.
Robert Taylor has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Robert always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Robert Taylor 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 Robert more than anything else. Robert Taylor feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Robert has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Robert's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Robert Taylor 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 Robert's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
Robert Taylor has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for Taylor to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
