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 Davies comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dave Davies - 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 Davies" 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 Davies 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 Davies' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Dave Davies wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Dave Davies wants, Dave Davies 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. Dave Davies 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. Dave Davies usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Davies approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Dave Davies 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 Davies. When Dave Davies 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 Davies 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 Dave Davies as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Dave Davies also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Dave Davies has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Dave Davies often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Dave into trouble. Dave Davies tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Dave Davies needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Dave Davies which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Dave is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Davies sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Dave Davies may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Dave should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Dave Davies appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Davies understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Dave Davies really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Others may see Dave as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Dave Davies may feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Daring and a bit reckless, Dave Davies is not afraid to face danger. Dave wants to be the biggest, the best, the strongest and the most powerful! Dave Davies has a need to have his influence noted in many directions and a desire to rule over those in his environment.
