approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Danny's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Danny Wood comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Danny Wood - 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 Danny Wood" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Danny a little better. This page describes the disguise Wood 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 Wood's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Danny Wood wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Danny Wood wants, Danny Wood usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Danny 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. Danny Wood 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. Danny Wood usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Wood approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Danny Wood 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 Wood. When Danny Wood 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, Danny Wood 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 Danny Wood as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Danny Wood also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Danny Wood seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Danny Wood has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Danny Wood has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Wood draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; Danny Wood may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Danny appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
Wood projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Danny Wood generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Danny Wood emanates.
Danny has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Danny's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Wood is likely to go his own way in life and he has a tendency to stay secluded from others. Danny Wood is always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas and gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
