approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Stéphane's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Stéphane Lambiel comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Stéphane Lambiel - 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 Stéphane Lambiel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Stéphane a little better. This page describes the disguise Lambiel wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Stéphane Lambiel 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. Stéphane 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. Lambiel tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Lambiel.
Lambiel 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, Stéphane Lambiel 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 Stéphane'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 Stéphane 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. Stéphane Lambiel empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Stéphane Lambiel 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. Stéphane Lambiel communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Stéphane never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Stéphane Lambiel has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Stéphane Lambiel often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Stéphane Lambiel seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Stéphane tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Stéphane Lambiel appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Stéphane Lambiel may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
He is assertive and bold. Stéphane Lambiel is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Stéphane generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Stéphane Lambiel's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Lambiel do things that go against his better judgment. Even Stéphane's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Stéphane Lambiel needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
