approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Wilt's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Wilt Chamberlain comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Wilt Chamberlain - 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 Wilt Chamberlain" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Wilt a little better. This page describes the disguise Chamberlain wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Wilt Chamberlain has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Chamberlain as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Wilt does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Wilt Chamberlain is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Chamberlain can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Chamberlain has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Wilt Chamberlain appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Wilt often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Wilt is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Chamberlain's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Wilt Chamberlain has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Chamberlain is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Wilt Chamberlain has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Wilt Chamberlain often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Wilt's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Wilt Chamberlain also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Chamberlain needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
Wilt has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Wilt's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
In significant ways, Chamberlain's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Wilt Chamberlain may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Wilt Chamberlain 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.
Wilt Chamberlain 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 Wilt Chamberlain should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
