approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Patrick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Patrick Swayze comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Patrick Swayze - 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 Swayze" 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 Swayze 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, Patrick Swayze always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Swayze will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Patrick Swayze 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. Patrick Swayze also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Swayze's environment is very important to Swayze.
Swayze 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. Patrick Swayze 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, Patrick rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Patrick Swayze as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Swayze 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. Patrick 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.
Patrick Swayze comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Swayze is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it.
He is assertive and bold. Patrick Swayze is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Patrick generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Patrick Swayze's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Patrick Swayze tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
