approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Louis' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Louis Malle comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Louis Malle - 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 Louis Malle" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Louis a little better. This page describes the disguise Malle wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Louis Malle always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Malle will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Louis Malle has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Louis Malle also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Malle's environment is very important to Malle.
Malle steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Louis Malle tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Louis rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Louis Malle as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Malle has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Louis may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Louis Malle seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Louis Malle has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Louis Malle has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Louis Malle can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Louis that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Malle is around.
He is self-assured and confident in dealing with others and has a positive influence on his environment. Louis Malle is able to work well with others in a team effort, and advantages through other people could come to him frequently.
