approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Maury's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Maury Povich comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Maury Povich - 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 Maury Povich" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Maury a little better. This page describes the disguise Povich wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Maury Povich has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Povich as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Maury does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Maury Povich is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Povich can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Povich has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Maury Povich appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Maury often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Maury is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Povich's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Maury Povich has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Povich is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
While disinclined to move quickly or make sudden changes, Maury nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being "an original" and has a touch of creative genius. Others see Maury Povich as "different", but interesting and exciting. He is an odd mix of the conservative and the eccentric.
Maury Povich has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Maury will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Povich can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
