approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Willis' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Willis Carrier comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Willis Carrier - 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 Willis Carrier" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Willis a little better. This page describes the disguise Carrier wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Willis Carrier is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Carrier sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Willis' whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Willis Carrier himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Willis Carrier is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Willis Carrier is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Carrier probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Carrier's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Willis Carrier as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Willis does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Willis Carrier is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Willis Carrier is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Willis Carrier needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Carrier's work or outside social activities.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Willis Carrier which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Willis he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Carrier 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, Willis Carrier may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Willis should avoid looking always on the dark side.
It could be hard for Willis Carrier to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Carrier displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
Willis Carrier seems to float between the worlds and prefers to live in a world of illusion rather than reality. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Willis Carrier should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
