approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tim's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tim Buckley comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tim Buckley - 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 Tim Buckley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tim a little better. This page describes the disguise Buckley wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Tim Buckley always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Buckley will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Tim Buckley has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Tim Buckley also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Buckley's environment is very important to Buckley.
Buckley steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Tim Buckley tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Tim rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Tim Buckley as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Buckley has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Tim may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Tim's personality. Tim Buckley may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up his own mind, and Buckley may thus appear to be indecisive.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Tim Buckley could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Buckley may wish he was not so easy to read.
Tim Buckley seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Buckley tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Tim has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Tim Buckley is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Buckley must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Tim often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Tim Buckley and his objectives. Buckley might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
Tim Buckley 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 Buckley to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
His attitude towards life is governed by his feelings and Tim Buckley tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Tim has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Buckley for advice.
