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 Donahue comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Phil Donahue - 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 Donahue" 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 Donahue wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Phil Donahue is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Phil tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Donahue's way of dealing with problems.
Phil Donahue may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Donahue's emotional balance and well-being.
Phil Donahue is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Phil Donahue probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Donahue's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Donahue, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Donahue's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Donahue will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Phil Donahue overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Donahue's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Phil through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Donahue's more rational friends. Phil Donahue certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Phil Donahue has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Phil Donahue to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Phil Donahue has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and he tends to take himself and life too seriously. He possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. He may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Phil Donahue seems authoritarian to others.
Phil Donahue can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Phil that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Donahue is around.
Phil Donahue comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Donahue also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Phil Donahue also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Phil Donahue appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Donahue is unreliable.
Phil Donahue 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.
