approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Silvio's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Silvio Berlusconi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Silvio Berlusconi - 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 Silvio Berlusconi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Silvio a little better. This page describes the disguise Berlusconi 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, Silvio Berlusconi always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Berlusconi will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Silvio Berlusconi 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. Silvio Berlusconi also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Berlusconi's environment is very important to Berlusconi.
Berlusconi 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. Silvio Berlusconi 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, Silvio rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Silvio Berlusconi as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Berlusconi 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. Silvio 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.
Silvio has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Silvio's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
It may be hard for Silvio Berlusconi to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Berlusconi displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
He is very receptive to the influence of his environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use him. Silvio Berlusconi has the ability to tune into the events around him, but he also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
Silvio Berlusconi tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Berlusconi bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
