approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Don's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Don Johnson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Don Johnson - 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 Don Johnson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Don a little better. This page describes the disguise Johnson 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, Don Johnson always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Johnson will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Don Johnson 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. Don Johnson also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Johnson's environment is very important to Johnson.
Johnson 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. Don Johnson 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, Don rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Don Johnson as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Johnson 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. Don 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, unglamourous position in life.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Don's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Don Johnson also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Johnson needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Don Johnson 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 Johnson. Don Johnson appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Don Johnson appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Johnson is unreliable.
At times his desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Johnson does things that go against his better judgment. Even Don's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Don Johnson needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Don Johnson changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Johnson is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
Don Johnson tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Don does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
