approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Teddy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Teddy Geiger comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Teddy Geiger - 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 Teddy Geiger" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Teddy a little better. This page describes the disguise Geiger wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Geiger's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Teddy Geiger wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Teddy Geiger wants, Teddy Geiger usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Teddy wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Teddy Geiger functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Teddy Geiger usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Geiger approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Teddy Geiger also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Geiger. When Teddy Geiger commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Teddy Geiger is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Teddy Geiger as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Teddy Geiger also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He is impressionable, sympathetic, and responsive to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him. Teddy Geiger harmonizes, blends, and adapts himself to other people. Often he is rather quiet, just listening and feeling. He is subtle and knows when to keep silent and wait. Teddy acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
Teddy Geiger can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Teddy that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Geiger is around.
Geiger is likely to go his own way in life and he has a tendency to stay secluded from others. Teddy Geiger is always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas and gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
Teddy Geiger has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
