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 Hugo comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Victor Hugo - 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 Hugo" 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 Hugo wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Hugo's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Victor Hugo wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Victor Hugo wants, Victor Hugo usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Victor wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Victor Hugo functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Victor Hugo usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Hugo approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Victor Hugo also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Hugo. When Victor Hugo commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Victor Hugo is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Victor Hugo as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Victor Hugo also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Victor into trouble. Victor Hugo tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Victor Hugo needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Victor has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Victor Hugo is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Hugo must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Victor Hugo that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Hugo tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Hugo projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Victor Hugo 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 Victor Hugo emanates.
Victor Hugo comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Victor Hugo was mature for his age.
