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 Sellers comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Sellers - 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 Sellers" 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 Sellers 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 Sellers always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Sellers will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Peter Sellers 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 Sellers also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Sellers' environment is very important to Sellers.
Sellers 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 Sellers 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 Sellers as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Sellers 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 Sellers seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Sellers is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
Peter Sellers appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Peter Sellers seemed mature for his age.
