approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Thomas' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tom Harmon comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tom Harmon - 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 Tom Harmon" 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 Harmon wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Tom Harmon will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Thomas has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Tom Harmon very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Harmon is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Tom Harmon will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Harmon's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Tom Harmon appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Harmon is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Thomas possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Tom Harmon - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Tom Harmon does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Thomas.
Others see Tom Harmon as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Harmon shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Tom Harmon usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Harmon projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Tom Harmon generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Thomas somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Tom Harmon emanates.
Tom Harmon tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
Tom Harmon tends to suppress his feelings and may even pretend that he does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Thomas feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate himself. Others see Tom Harmon as a reserved, detached and serious person.
