approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Flavor Flav's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Flavor Flav comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Flavor Flav - 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 Flavor Flav" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Flavor Flav a little better. This page describes the disguise William Drayton wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Flavor Flav appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Flavor Flav has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. William Drayton tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to William Drayton.
William Drayton approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Flavor Flav is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Flavor Flav's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Flavor Flav and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Flavor Flav empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Flavor Flav is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Flavor Flav communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Flavor Flav never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Flavor Flav seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Flavor Flav tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
It could be hard for Flavor Flav to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. William Drayton displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Flavor Flav changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because William Drayton is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
Quite excitable and very impatient, Flavor Flav is ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, William Drayton also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Flavor Flav does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
Flavor Flav seems to float between the worlds and prefers to live in a world of illusion rather than reality. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Flavor Flav should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
