approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Donnie's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Donnie Wahlberg comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Donnie Wahlberg - 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 Donnie Wahlberg" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Donnie a little better. This page describes the disguise Wahlberg wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Donnie Wahlberg meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Donnie projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Wahlberg is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Donnie Wahlberg may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Wahlberg is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Donnie to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Donnie Wahlberg feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Wahlberg's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Donnie Wahlberg it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Donnie Wahlberg is not a follower. Others see Donnie as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Wahlberg presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Donnie learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. All is well on the surface, but when trouble arises, Donnie Wahlberg seems childish and needy. When he is in calmer waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in others.
Donnie Wahlberg appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Donnie Wahlberg may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Donnie Wahlberg radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Wahlberg when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
The initial impression Wahlberg makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Donnie thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Donnie Wahlberg may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Donnie Wahlberg tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
He is very receptive to the influence of his environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use him. Donnie Wahlberg has the ability to tune into the events around him, but he also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
