approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Seal's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Seal comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Seal - 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 Seal" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Seal a little better. This page describes the disguise Seal wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Seal appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Seal has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Seal tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Seal.
Seal approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Seal is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Seal's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Seal and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Seal empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Seal is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Seal communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Seal never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Seal learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. All is well on the surface, but when trouble arises, Seal seems childish and needy. When he is in calmer waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in others.
Seal radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Seal when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Seal comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Seal is unreliable.
His family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Seal's personality. Somewhat insecure, Seal may feel that others restrain him. He has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
