approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Didier's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Didier Gustin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Didier Gustin - 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 Didier Gustin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Didier a little better. This page describes the disguise Gustin 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, Didier Gustin 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. Didier has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Didier Gustin very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Gustin is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Didier Gustin will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Gustin's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Didier Gustin 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.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Gustin is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Didier possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Didier Gustin - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Didier Gustin does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Didier.
Others see Didier Gustin as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Gustin shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Didier Gustin usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Didier Gustin could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Gustin may wish he were not so easy to read.
The way Didier Gustin comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of his character. Specifically, what gives Didier pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Gustin's outward demeanor. Didier Gustin 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.
