The following is a description of Patrick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Patrick Macnee comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Patrick Macnee - 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 Patrick Macnee" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Patrick a little better. This page describes the disguise Macnee wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Macnee's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Patrick Macnee wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Patrick Macnee wants, Patrick Macnee usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Patrick wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle.

Macnee approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Patrick Macnee also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Macnee. When Patrick Macnee commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Patrick Macnee is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
