approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dougray's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dougray Scott comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dougray Scott - 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 Dougray Scott" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dougray a little better. This page describes the disguise Scott wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Dougray Scott frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Scott, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Dougray does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Dougray Scott seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Dougray dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Scott likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Dougray Scott respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Scott's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Dougray Scott has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Dougray Scott spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Dougray exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Scott shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Dougray Scott comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Scott infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Dougray Scott does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Dougray Scott tends to blend in with, and assume the characteristics of those around him, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe" and enjoy donning different personalities at different times.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Dougray Scott often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
