approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Conan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Conan O'Brien comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Conan O'Brien - 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 Conan O'Brien" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Conan a little better. This page describes the disguise O'Brien 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, Conan O'Brien always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often O'Brien will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Conan O'Brien 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. Conan O'Brien also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in O'Brien's environment is very important to O'Brien.
O'Brien 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. Conan O'Brien 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, Conan rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Conan O'Brien as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. O'Brien 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. Conan 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.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make O'Brien do things that go against his better judgment. Even Conan's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Conan O'Brien needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
He is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Conan O'Brien needs his freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Conan has a strong desire to exceed his limits, even if it means having to use force.
