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 Cassidy comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner David Cassidy - 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 Cassidy" 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 Cassidy wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
David Cassidy 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. David 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. Cassidy tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Cassidy.
Cassidy 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, David Cassidy 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 David'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 David 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. David Cassidy empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and David Cassidy 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. David Cassidy communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
David never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
David has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. David Cassidy is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Cassidy must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.

Cassidy also needs to be busy and active and he moves quickly. David Cassidy also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
David Cassidy comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, David Cassidy was mature for his age.
Cassidy is likely to go his own way in life and he has a tendency to stay secluded from others. David Cassidy 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.
David Cassidy tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. David should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to avoid misunderstandings or disappointments.
