approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ridley's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ridley Scott comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ridley Scott - 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 Ridley Scott" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ridley a little better. This page describes the disguise Scott wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Ridley Scott is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Scott sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Ridley's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Ridley Scott himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Ridley Scott is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Ridley Scott is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Scott probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Scott's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Ridley Scott as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Ridley does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Ridley Scott is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Ridley Scott is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Ridley Scott needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Scott's work or outside social activities.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Ridley Scott could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Scott may wish he were not so easy to read.
Ridley Scott comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Scott tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Ridley Scott can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Ridley that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Scott is around.
He is self-assured and confident in dealing with others and has a positive influence on his environment. Ridley Scott is able to work well with others in a team environment and advantages through other people may come to him frequently.
