approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rock's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Rock Hudson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rock Hudson - 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 Rock Hudson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rock a little better. This page describes the disguise Hudson 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, Rock Hudson 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. Rock has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Rock Hudson very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Hudson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Rock Hudson will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Hudson'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. Rock Hudson 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 Hudson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Rock 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 Rock Hudson - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Rock Hudson 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 Rock.
Others see Rock Hudson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Hudson 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 Rock Hudson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Rock Hudson 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 Hudson to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Rock Hudson has a hypnotizing effect on people in his surroundings and others see him as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Rock has a strong desire to mentally dominate his relationships, and with his ability to out-talk anyone, he can sway them to his opinions.
