approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Vladimir's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vladimir Lenin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Vladimir Lenin - 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 Vladimir Lenin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Vladimir a little better. This page describes the disguise Lenin 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 Lenin's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Vladimir Lenin wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Vladimir Lenin wants, Vladimir Lenin usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Vladimir 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. Vladimir Lenin 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. Vladimir Lenin usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Lenin approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Vladimir Lenin 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 Lenin. When Vladimir Lenin 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, Vladimir Lenin 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 Vladimir Lenin as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Vladimir Lenin also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Vladimir Lenin appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Lenin as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
His attitude towards life is governed by his feelings and Vladimir Lenin tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Vladimir has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Lenin for advice.
