approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Cody's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Cody Rhodes comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Cody Rhodes - 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 Cody Rhodes" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Cody a little better. This page describes the disguise Rhodes 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, Cody Rhodes always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Rhodes will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Cody Rhodes 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. Cody Rhodes also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Rhodes' environment is very important to Rhodes.
Rhodes 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. Cody Rhodes 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, Cody rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Cody Rhodes as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Rhodes 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. Cody 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.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Cody Rhodes could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Rhodes may wish he were not so easy to read.
Cody Rhodes comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Rhodes tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
He is assertive and bold. Cody Rhodes is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Cody generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Cody Rhodes' boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Rhodes do things that go against his better judgment. Even Cody's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Cody Rhodes needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Others may see Cody as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Cody Rhodes may feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Cody Rhodes has a hypnotizing effect on people in his surroundings and others see him as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Cody has a strong desire to mentally dominate his relationships, and with his ability to out-talk anyone, he can sway them to his opinions.
Cody Rhodes tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and he may feel that he has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by his surroundings. Rhodes is likely to feel hemmed in and considers dealing with others quite burdensome.
Cody Rhodes tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Rhodes comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
