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 Cummings comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dave Cummings - 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 Cummings" 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 Cummings wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Dave Cummings appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Dave has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Cummings tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Cummings.
Cummings approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Dave Cummings is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Dave's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Dave and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Dave Cummings empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Dave Cummings is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Dave Cummings communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Dave never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Dave Cummings has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Dave will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Cummings can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Dave Cummings makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Cummings. Dave Cummings appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
He is assertive and bold. Dave Cummings is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Dave 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, Dave Cummings' boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Dave Cummings seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
