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 Thewlis comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner David Thewlis - 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 Thewlis" 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 Thewlis wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
David Thewlis 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. Thewlis tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Thewlis.
Thewlis 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 Thewlis 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 Thewlis 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 Thewlis 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 Thewlis 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.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes David learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. It is all right on the surface, but when trouble arises David Thewlis seems childish and needy. When he is in smoother waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in other people.
David Thewlis radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Thewlis when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
David Thewlis seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Thewlis is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
