approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Diddy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way P. Diddy comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner P. Diddy - 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 P. Diddy" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Diddy a little better. This page describes the disguise Puff Daddy wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, P. Diddy frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Puff Daddy, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Diddy does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others P. Diddy seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Diddy dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Puff Daddy likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
P. Diddy respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Puff Daddy's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
P. Diddy has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. P. Diddy spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Diddy exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Puff Daddy shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
P. Diddy appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, P. Diddy may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
P. Diddy has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Diddy will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Puff Daddy can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about P. Diddy that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Puff Daddy tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
P. Diddy tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. Diddy should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
