approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dean's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dean Martin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dean Martin - 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 Dean Martin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dean a little better. This page describes the disguise Martin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Dean Martin is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Dean tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Martin's way of dealing with problems.
Dean Martin may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Martin's emotional balance and well-being.
Dean Martin is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Dean Martin probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Martin's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Martin, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Martin's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Martin will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Dean Martin overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Martin's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Dean through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Martin's more rational friends. Dean Martin certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Dean Martin has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Dean Martin to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Dean Martin has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Dean Martin often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Dean Martin makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Martin. Dean Martin appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Martin has a well developed personality and tends to base his relationships with others on a more personal level. Dean Martin is inclined to seek mental or intellectual relationships and also has a strong desire for soul-unions.
