approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Matthew's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Matthew Bellamy comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Matthew Bellamy - 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 Matthew Bellamy" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Matthew a little better. This page describes the disguise Bellamy 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, Matthew Bellamy always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Bellamy will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Matthew Bellamy 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. Matthew Bellamy also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Bellamy's environment is very important to Bellamy.
Bellamy 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. Matthew Bellamy 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, Matthew rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Matthew Bellamy as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Bellamy 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. Matthew 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.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Matthew Bellamy seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Matthew tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Bellamy projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Matthew Bellamy generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Matthew Bellamy emanates.
Matthew Bellamy comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Bellamy is unreliable.
Matthew Bellamy has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and he considers second place as a failure. Bellamy is very self-confident, has the ability to mold his surrounding to his own needs and is likely to furnish his home according to his taste.
Matthew Bellamy seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Matthew Bellamy should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
