approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Woodrow's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Woodrow Wilson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Woodrow Wilson - 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 Woodrow Wilson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Woodrow a little better. This page describes the disguise Wilson 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, Woodrow Wilson 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. Woodrow has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Woodrow Wilson very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Wilson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Woodrow Wilson will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Wilson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Woodrow Wilson 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 Wilson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Woodrow 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 Woodrow Wilson - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Woodrow Wilson 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 Woodrow.
Others see Woodrow Wilson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Wilson 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 Woodrow Wilson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Woodrow Wilson seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Woodrow tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Woodrow Wilson appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Wilson may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Woodrow fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Woodrow Wilson is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Woodrow has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Woodrow Wilson is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Wilson must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Woodrow Wilson is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Woodrow radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Woodrow's personality. Wilson can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Woodrow Wilson may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Wilson must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Woodrow Wilson is. On the other hand, Woodrow Wilson may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Wilson is likely to go his own way in life and he ha a tendency to keep secluded from others. Always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas, Woodrow Wilson gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
