approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Siegfried's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Siegfried Fischbacher comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Siegfried Fischbacher - 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 Siegfried Fischbacher" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Siegfried a little better. This page describes the disguise Fischbacher wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Siegfried Fischbacher 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. Siegfried 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. Fischbacher tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Fischbacher.
Fischbacher 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, Siegfried Fischbacher 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 Siegfried'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 Siegfried 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. Siegfried Fischbacher empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Siegfried Fischbacher 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. Siegfried Fischbacher communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Siegfried never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Siegfried Fischbacher tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Siegfried does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Siegfried Fischbacher likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Fischbacher may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Fischbacher's challenge.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Siegfried Fischbacher could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Fischbacher may wish he was not so easy to read.
Siegfried Fischbacher 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, Fischbacher may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Siegfried fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Siegfried Fischbacher is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Siegfried Fischbacher has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Siegfried coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Siegfried Fischbacher is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Fischbacher seems to need others' approval first.
