approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sigmund's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Sigmund Freud comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sigmund Freud - 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 Sigmund Freud" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sigmund a little better. This page describes the disguise Freud wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Freud's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Sigmund Freud wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Sigmund Freud wants, Sigmund Freud usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Sigmund wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Sigmund Freud functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Sigmund Freud usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Freud approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Sigmund Freud also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Freud. When Sigmund Freud commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Sigmund Freud is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Sigmund Freud as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Sigmund Freud also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
At times Sigmund Freud comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Freud's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Sigmund Freud irresistibly.
Sigmund Freud has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Freud can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Freud. Sigmund probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
Sigmund has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. Sigmund has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
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.
His family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Sigmund's personality. Somewhat insecure, Sigmund Freud may feel that others restrain him. He has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
Freud strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Sigmund Freud spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
