approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dermot's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dermot Mulroney comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dermot Mulroney - 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 Dermot Mulroney" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dermot a little better. This page describes the disguise Mulroney wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Dermot Mulroney frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Mulroney, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Dermot does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Dermot Mulroney seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Dermot dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Mulroney likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Dermot Mulroney respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Mulroney's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Dermot Mulroney has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Dermot Mulroney spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Dermot exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Mulroney shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Dermot Mulroney has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Dermot will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Mulroney can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Dermot Mulroney that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Mulroney tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Dermot Mulroney tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
