approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of David's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way David Brudnoy comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner David Brudnoy - 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 David Brudnoy" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know David a little better. This page describes the disguise Brudnoy wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
David Brudnoy meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, David projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Brudnoy is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. David Brudnoy may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Brudnoy is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables David to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, David Brudnoy feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Brudnoy's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To David Brudnoy it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. David Brudnoy is not a follower. Others see David as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Brudnoy presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about David Brudnoy which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that David he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Brudnoy 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 though, David Brudnoy may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. David should avoid looking always on the dark side.
David Brudnoy comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Brudnoy also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. David Brudnoy also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
