The following is a description of Dean's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dean Winters comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dean Winters - 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 Winters" 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 Winters wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Dean Winters will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Dean has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Dean Winters very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Winters is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Dean Winters will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Winters' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Dean Winters appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.

Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important.

He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Dean Winters usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
