approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dave's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dave Chappelle comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dave Chappelle - 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 Dave Chappelle" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dave a little better. This page describes the disguise Chappelle 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 Chappelle's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Dave Chappelle wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Dave Chappelle wants, Dave Chappelle usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Dave 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.

He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Dave Chappelle usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Chappelle approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Dave Chappelle 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 Chappelle. When Dave Chappelle 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, Dave Chappelle is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway.
