approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Peter's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Peter Cushing comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Cushing - 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 Peter Cushing" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Peter a little better. This page describes the disguise Cushing 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, Peter Cushing always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Cushing will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Peter Cushing 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. Peter Cushing also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Cushing's environment is very important to Cushing.
Cushing 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. Peter Cushing 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, Peter rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Peter Cushing as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Cushing 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. Peter 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.
Peter Cushing 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, Cushing may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Peter is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Peter Cushing's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Peter often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally, if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will strongly resist Peter Cushing and his objectives. Cushing might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
Peter Cushing has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for Cushing to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Peter Cushing is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, Cushing also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Peter Cushing does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
