approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Stuart's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Stuart Townsend comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Stuart Townsend - 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 Stuart Townsend" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Stuart a little better. This page describes the disguise Townsend wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Stuart Townsend is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Stuart tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Townsend's way of dealing with problems.
Stuart Townsend may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Townsend's emotional balance and well-being.
Stuart Townsend is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Stuart Townsend probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Townsend's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Townsend, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Townsend's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Townsend will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Stuart Townsend overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Townsend's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Stuart through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Townsend's more rational friends. Stuart Townsend certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Stuart Townsend has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Stuart Townsend to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Stuart Townsend seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Stuart tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Stuart Townsend 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. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Stuart Townsend may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Stuart has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. Stuart has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
Stuart Townsend has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for Townsend to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
