approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Paul's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Paul Dano comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Paul Dano - 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 Paul Dano" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Paul a little better. This page describes the disguise Dano 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, Paul Dano always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Dano will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Paul Dano 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. Paul Dano also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Dano's environment is very important to Dano.
Dano 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. Paul Dano 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, Paul rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Paul Dano as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Dano 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. Paul 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.
Paul Dano has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
Paul Dano tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. Paul should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to avoid misunderstandings or disappointments.
