approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Yves' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Yves Rocher comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Yves Rocher - 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 Yves Rocher" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Yves a little better. This page describes the disguise Rocher wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Rocher's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Yves Rocher wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Yves Rocher wants, Yves Rocher usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Yves wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Yves Rocher functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Yves Rocher usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Rocher approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Yves Rocher also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Rocher. When Yves Rocher commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Yves Rocher is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Yves Rocher as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Yves Rocher also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Yves Rocher is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Yves 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 certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Yves Rocher that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Rocher tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
The initial impression Rocher makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Yves thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Yves Rocher may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Yves Rocher tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
Rocher is cheerful, warm-hearted and social and he strives for a pleasant life. He likes to be seen in social circles and is charitable to his fellow man. It makes Yves Rocher happy to be involved in many relationships and he is very sympathetic toward everyone.
