Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Thomas Dekker" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Thomas a little better. This page describes the disguise Dekker wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Thomas Dekker meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Thomas projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Dekker is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Thomas Dekker may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Dekker is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Thomas to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Thomas Dekker feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Dekker's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Thomas Dekker it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Thomas Dekker is not a follower. Others see Thomas as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Dekker presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Thomas Dekker radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. He likes himself and it shows. He expects success in life and he generally achieves it. However, Dekker also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate himself, and he can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
