approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Dyan's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Dyan Cannon comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Dyan Cannon - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her 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 Dyan Cannon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Dyan a little better. This page describes the disguise Cannon wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, she is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Dyan Cannon is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. She is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Cannon sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and she wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to her community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Dyan's whole outlook and approach to life. She is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only her own personal well-being.
Sometimes she may overlook or ignore her own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to her ideals of how one should feel or act. Though she has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Dyan Cannon herself is sometimes dogmatic about her beliefs and ideologies.
She is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and she is eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes. She may consider herself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Dyan Cannon is strongly influenced by her peer group and the flavor of the times in which she grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. She is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Dyan Cannon is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Cannon probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Cannon's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Dyan Cannon as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Dyan does not often show her emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for she tends to be very rational.
Dyan Cannon is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Dyan Cannon is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Dyan Cannon needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Cannon's work or outside social activities.
Dyan Cannon appears sympathetic and approachable. Because she uses her feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Cannon understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Dyan Cannon really wants people to know how she feels, and their care and support are very important to her.
She is discrete, tactful and adaptable, and has the ability to create a beautiful environment. Dyan Cannon has a knack for entertaining people and appreciates pleasing manners and proper behavior when she is with others.
Dyan Cannon tends to be somewhat insecure in her relationships with other people and she strives for safety and security in her life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Dyan, and she has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
