approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Melvin's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Melvin Belli comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Melvin Belli - 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 Melvin Belli" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Melvin a little better. This page describes the disguise Belli 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, Melvin Belli always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Belli will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Melvin Belli 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. Melvin Belli also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Belli's environment is very important to Belli.
Belli 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. Melvin Belli 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, Melvin rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Melvin Belli as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Belli 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. Melvin 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 is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Melvin Belli is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Melvin radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Melvin Belli appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Belli infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Melvin Belli does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Melvin Belli tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
