approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ray's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ray Davies comes across, the face he shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Ray Davies" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ray a little better. This page describes the disguise Davies wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ray Davies meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Ray projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Davies is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Ray Davies may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Davies is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Ray to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Ray Davies feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Davies' forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Ray Davies it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Ray Davies is not a follower. Others see Ray as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Davies presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Ray Davies that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Davies 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.
Ray Davies comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Davies is unreliable.
