approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rey's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Rey Mysterio comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rey Mysterio - 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 Rey Mysterio" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rey a little better. This page describes the disguise Mysterio 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Rey Mysterio is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Rey 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 Mysterio's way of dealing with problems.
Rey Mysterio 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 Mysterio's emotional balance and well-being.
Rey Mysterio is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Rey Mysterio probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Mysterio's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Mysterio, 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 Mysterio's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Mysterio will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Rey Mysterio overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Mysterio'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 Rey through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Mysterio's more rational friends. Rey Mysterio certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Rey Mysterio 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 Rey Mysterio 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.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Rey Mysterio has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Rey Mysterio often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Rey Mysterio seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Rey tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
To others, Rey Mysterio appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Rey that inspired people to rely on him. Mysterio keeps his cool in most situations.
