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 York comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dick York - 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 York" 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 York wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Dick York appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Dick has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. York tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to York.
York approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Dick York is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Dick's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Dick and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Dick York empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Dick York is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Dick York communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Dick never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Dick York seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. York tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Dick York can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Dick that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when York is around.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Dick York 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 York. Dick York appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
York projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Dick York generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Dick somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Dick York emanates.
Dick York 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.
