approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of William's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way William Haines comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner William Haines - 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 William Haines" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know William a little better. This page describes the disguise Haines wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, William Haines will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. William has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. William Haines very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Haines is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often William Haines will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Haines' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. William Haines appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Haines is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for William possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to William Haines - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. William Haines does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for William.
Others see William Haines as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Haines shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for William Haines usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, William Haines has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, William Haines often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and William Haines could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Haines may wish he were not so easy to read.
William has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. William Haines is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Haines must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
William Haines comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Haines is unreliable.
His attitude toward life is governed by his feelings and William Haines tends to seek cordial understanding with others. William has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Haines for advice.
