approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kyle's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kyle Petty comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kyle Petty - 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 Kyle Petty" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kyle a little better. This page describes the disguise Petty wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Kyle loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Kyle Petty has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Kyle Petty tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Kyle Petty loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Kyle Petty has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Kyle Petty cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Kyle and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Kyle Petty gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Petty likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Kyle Petty as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
His desire to love and be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Kyle Petty is known for his personal charm and affectionate nature. He may also seem overly dependent on the approval and appreciation of others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Kyle Petty which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Kyle is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Petty sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Kyle Petty may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Kyle should avoid always looking on the dark side.
The initial impression Petty makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Kyle thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Kyle Petty 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, Kyle Petty 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.
Kyle Petty has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Kyle wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
