approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of William's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Smokey Robinson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Smokey Robinson - 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 Smokey Robinson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know William a little better. This page describes the disguise Smokey Robinson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Smokey Robinson is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Smokey Robinson has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Smokey Robinson can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Smokey Robinson enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, William never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Smokey Robinson has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Smokey Robinson may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Smokey Robinson responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. William does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Smokey Robinson will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Smokey Robinson's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Smokey Robinson becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Smokey Robinson tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Smokey Robinson seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. William tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Smokey Robinson changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Smokey Robinson is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
Smokey Robinson tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. William does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
