The following is a description of William's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way William Beckett comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner William Beckett - 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 Beckett" 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 Beckett wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
William Beckett is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. William Beckett has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Beckett can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. William Beckett enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, William never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. William Beckett has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Beckett may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, William Beckett responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. William does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Beckett will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Beckett's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. William Beckett becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. William Beckett tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Beckett may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that William Beckett is always a bit off center.
William Beckett also comes across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about William's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, William Beckett also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Beckett needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
In significant ways, Beckett's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, William Beckett may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When William Beckett is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
He is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of his environment. Far-sighted and prudent, William Beckett has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success will likely to be his.
