approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dudley's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Dudley Moore comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dudley Moore - 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 Dudley Moore" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dudley a little better. This page describes the disguise Moore 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, Dudley Moore 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. Dudley has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Dudley Moore very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Moore is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Dudley Moore will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Moore'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. Dudley Moore 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 Moore is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Dudley 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 Dudley Moore - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Dudley Moore 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 Dudley.
Others see Dudley Moore as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Moore 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 Dudley Moore usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Assertiveness and confrontation is very much part of Moore's way of approaching life. Waiting for someone else to make the first move is not Moore's style. Though Dudley Moore values harmony and pleasantness, he often feels that others are trying to control him or are not trying to cooperate with him. Others feel that Dudley demands too much of them. Surprisingly, Dudley Moore is often perceived by others as a trouble maker or instigator, even when Moore's intention is to help and assist them.
