approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dennis' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dennis Wilson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dennis Wilson - 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 Dennis Wilson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dennis a little better. This page describes the disguise Wilson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Dennis Wilson likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Wilson must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Dennis does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Dennis Wilson also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Wilson will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Dennis dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Wilson admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Dennis Wilson befriends someone, Wilson is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Dennis expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Dennis Wilson often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Dennis Wilson has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Dennis always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Dennis Wilson also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Dennis more than anything else. Dennis Wilson feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
The way Dennis Wilson comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Dennis pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Wilson's outward demeanor. Dennis Wilson seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
His pleasant and friendly disposition enables Dennis Wilson to come in quick personal relationships with other people. He enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to his environment.
His family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Dennis' personality. Somewhat insecure, Dennis Wilson may feel that others restrain him. He has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
