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 Dysart comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Richard Dysart - 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 Dysart" 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 Dysart wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Dysart's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Richard Dysart wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Richard Dysart wants, Richard Dysart usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Richard wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Richard Dysart functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Richard Dysart usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Dysart approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Richard Dysart also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Dysart. When Richard Dysart commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Richard Dysart is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Richard Dysart as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Richard Dysart also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
His desire to love and be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Richard Dysart is known for his personal charm and affectionate nature. He may also seem overly dependent on the approval and appreciation of others.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Richard Dysart is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Richard radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Richard Dysart comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Richard Dysart was mature for his age.
