approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Andrew's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Andy Hurley comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Andy Hurley - 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 Andy Hurley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Andrew a little better. This page describes the disguise Hurley 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, Andy Hurley always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Hurley will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Andy Hurley 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. Andy Hurley also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Hurley's environment is very important to Hurley.
Hurley 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. Andy Hurley 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, Andrew rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Andy Hurley as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Hurley 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. Andrew 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.
Andy Hurley radiates a sense of good will, optimism, and trust, which inspires hope in other people. His presence has a healing effect on others even without Hurley's awareness. Though Hurley appears modest and content in a humble position, he has a sense of inner greatness or worthiness that is unmistakable. Andy Hurley also has a balance of confidence and humility, of faith and caution, that makes him very appealing to others and he has many more admirers than he realizes.
Andy Hurley appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Hurley understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Andy Hurley really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Andy Hurley has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Andrew coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Andy Hurley is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Hurley seems to need others' approval first.
