approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Walter's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Walter Lantz comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Walter Lantz - 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 Walter Lantz" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Walter a little better. This page describes the disguise Lantz wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Walter Lantz likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Lantz must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Walter does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Walter Lantz also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Lantz will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Walter dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Lantz admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Walter Lantz befriends someone, Lantz is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Walter expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Walter Lantz often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Walter Lantz has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Walter always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Walter Lantz also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Walter more than anything else. Walter Lantz feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Walter Lantz appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Lantz understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Walter Lantz really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Walter Lantz is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Walter radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Walter has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Walter's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
