approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Topher's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Topher Grace comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Topher Grace - 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 Topher Grace" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Topher a little better. This page describes the disguise Grace 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, Topher Grace 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. Topher has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Topher Grace very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Grace is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Topher Grace will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Grace'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. Topher Grace 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 Grace is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Topher 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 Topher Grace - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Topher Grace 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 Topher.
Others see Topher Grace as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Grace 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 Topher Grace usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Topher Grace 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 Grace to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
At times Topher Grace may feels that he is all alone in the world and that other people only cause difficulties for him. Constantly bounced to and fro by others, Topher has a strong desire to free himself from his stressful surroundings.
