approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Phil's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Phil Everly comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Phil Everly - 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 Phil Everly" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Phil a little better. This page describes the disguise Everly 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, Phil Everly always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Everly will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Phil Everly 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. Phil Everly also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Everly's environment is very important to Everly.
Everly 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. Phil Everly 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, Phil rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Phil Everly as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Everly 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. Phil 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.
Phil Everly appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he had their best interest at heart. Because others view Everly as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek his counsel.
The image that Phil Everly projects to the world and the person he really is inside are considerably different. So much so that at times Phil may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Everly makes may actually be misleading. There is also much complexity and tension within him, and Phil Everly often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of himself.
