approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mick Avory comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mick Avory - 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 Mick Avory" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mick a little better. This page describes the disguise Avory 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, Mick Avory always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Avory will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Mick Avory 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. Mick Avory also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Avory's environment is very important to Avory.
Avory 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. Mick Avory 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, Mick rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Mick Avory as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Avory 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. Mick 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.
Mick Avory comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Avory may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Mick is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Mick Avory's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Mick has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Mick Avory is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Avory must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
