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 Coulthard comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner David Coulthard - 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 Coulthard" 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 Coulthard 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 Coulthard's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When David Coulthard wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what David Coulthard wants, David Coulthard usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. David 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. David Coulthard 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. David Coulthard usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Coulthard approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. David Coulthard 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 Coulthard. When David Coulthard 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, David Coulthard 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 David Coulthard as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. David Coulthard also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
David Coulthard appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case David Coulthard may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
David has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in David's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
