approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Viktor's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Viktor Yushchenko comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Viktor Yushchenko - 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 Viktor Yushchenko" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Viktor a little better. This page describes the disguise Yushchenko wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Viktor Yushchenko has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Yushchenko as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Viktor does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Viktor Yushchenko is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Yushchenko can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Yushchenko has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Viktor Yushchenko appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Viktor often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Viktor is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Yushchenko's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Viktor Yushchenko has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Yushchenko is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Viktor Yushchenko which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Viktor he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Yushchenko sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Viktor Yushchenko may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Viktor should avoid looking always on the dark side.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Viktor's personality. Yushchenko can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Viktor Yushchenko may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Yushchenko must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Viktor Yushchenko is. On the other hand, Viktor Yushchenko may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
