approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dick Cheney comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dick Cheney - 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 Dick Cheney" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dick a little better. This page describes the disguise Cheney wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Dick Cheney always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Cheney will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Dick Cheney has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Dick Cheney also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Cheney's environment is very important to Cheney.
Cheney steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Dick Cheney tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Dick rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Dick Cheney as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Cheney has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Dick may seem more businesslike and factual, as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Dick Cheney seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Cheney is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
Dick Cheney feels good about himself and enjoys good relationships with his friends and neighbors. He exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about himself, the world and other people.
Dick Cheney has a strong need to influence others and to dominate his home or environment. He is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Cheney's relationships will be very important to him and possibly affect his future.
