approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tom's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tom Welling comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tom Welling - 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 Welling" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tom a little better. This page describes the disguise Welling wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Tom Welling likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Welling must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Tom does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Tom Welling also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Welling will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Tom dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Welling admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Tom Welling befriends someone, Welling is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Tom expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Tom Welling often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Tom Welling has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Tom always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Tom Welling also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Tom more than anything else. Tom Welling feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Tom Welling has a sunny disposition that usually elicits a warm response from others. He is a wonderful entertainer and he has a gift for putting others in a good mood.
Tom Welling tends to take himself and his dignity seriously, and thus to inhibit his spontaneous creativity and dramatic impulses. Tom Welling appears mature, disciplined, controlled, and somewhat authoritarian to others. He is overly responsible much of the time, and tends to be far too hard on himself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Tom Welling has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Tom Welling often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Tom Welling comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Welling tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Tom has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Tom Welling is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Welling must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Welling 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 Welling generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Tom Welling emanates.
