approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Victor's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Victor Francen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Victor Francen - 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 Victor Francen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Victor a little better. This page describes the disguise Francen wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Victor Francen appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Victor has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Francen tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Francen.
Francen approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Victor Francen is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Victor's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Victor and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Victor Francen empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Victor Francen is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Victor Francen communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Victor never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
He is rather easily irritated and is apt to strike out somewhat irrationally when the mood strikes him. Though basically kind and sympathetic, Victor Francen will aggressively defend and protect those he cherishes (and his own interests). He may even be quite militant under the guise of standing up for his family, or country, or home team. Francen could also be an effective advocate for the rights and needs of children, mothers, and families.
Victor Francen loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Francen is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Victor Francen tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
