Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Wesley Scantlin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Wes Scantlin a little better. This page describes the disguise Scantlin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Wesley Scantlin always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Scantlin will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Wesley Scantlin has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Wesley Scantlin also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Scantlin's environment is very important to Scantlin.
Scantlin steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Wesley Scantlin tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Wes Scantlin rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Wesley Scantlin as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Scantlin has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Wes Scantlin may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Wesley Scantlin is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Wesley Scantlin tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
Wesley Scantlin comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Scantlin is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it.
Wesley Scantlin has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Wes Scantlin coaxes rather than coerces. However, if he does not get what he wants, Wesley Scantlin is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing it for himself.
