approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Richard's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Richard Dawkins comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Richard Dawkins - 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 Richard Dawkins" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Richard a little better. This page describes the disguise Dawkins wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Richard Dawkins is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Richard Dawkins has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Dawkins can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Richard Dawkins enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Richard never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Richard Dawkins has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Dawkins may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Richard Dawkins responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Richard does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Dawkins will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Dawkins' and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Richard Dawkins becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Richard Dawkins tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Richard Dawkins 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. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Richard Dawkins may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Richard Dawkins is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Richard Dawkins tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
Richard Dawkins seems to enjoy projecting a different image of himself to others, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
He is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Richard Dawkins needs his freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Richard has a strong desire to exceed his limits, even if it means having to use force.
Richard Dawkins seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Richard Dawkins should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
