This page describes the disguise Baldini wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Stefano Baldini frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Baldini, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Stefano does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Stefano Baldini seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Stefano dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Baldini likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Stefano Baldini respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Baldini's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
