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 Inge comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner William Inge - 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 Inge" 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 Inge 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, William Inge always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Inge will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
William Inge 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. William Inge also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Inge's environment is very important to Inge.
Inge 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. William Inge 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, William rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see William Inge as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Inge 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. William 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.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because William Inge likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Inge may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Inge's challenge.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about William Inge which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that William he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Inge sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, William Inge may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. William should avoid looking always on the dark side.
William Inge tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Inge always have something going on and is not afraid to take chances. William Inge takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep along others.
