approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Warren's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Warren Buffett comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Warren Buffett - 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 Warren Buffett" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Warren a little better. This page describes the disguise Buffett 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 Buffett's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Warren Buffett wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Warren Buffett wants, Warren Buffett usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Warren 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. Warren Buffett 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. Warren Buffett usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Buffett approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Warren Buffett 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 Buffett. When Warren Buffett 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, Warren Buffett 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 Warren Buffett as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Warren Buffett also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Warren Buffett that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Buffett 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.
Buffett is likely to go his own way in life and he ha a tendency to keep secluded from others. Always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas, Warren Buffett gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
