approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Roberto's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Roberto Calvi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Roberto Calvi - 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 Roberto Calvi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Roberto a little better. This page describes the disguise Calvi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Roberto Calvi always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Calvi will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Roberto Calvi has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Roberto Calvi also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Calvi's environment is very important to Calvi.
Calvi steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Roberto Calvi tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Roberto rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Roberto Calvi as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Calvi has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Roberto may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
In significant ways, Calvi's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Roberto Calvi may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Roberto Calvi is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Roberto Calvi feels good about himself and enjoys good relationships with his friends and neighbors. He exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, and he is always willing to learn more about himself, the world and other people.
He is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of his meetings with others could come about suddenly.
