approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of The Rock's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way The Rock comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner The Rock - 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 The Rock" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know The Rock a little better. This page describes the disguise Dwayne Johnson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, The Rock will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. The Rock has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. The Rock very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Dwayne Johnson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often The Rock will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Dwayne Johnson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. The Rock appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Dwayne Johnson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for The Rock possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to The Rock - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. The Rock does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for The Rock.
Others see The Rock as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Dwayne Johnson shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for The Rock usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of The Rock's personality. The Rock may sometimes come across as a busybody to others. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before he makes up his own mind, and Dwayne Johnson may thus appear to be indecisive.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who The Rock is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. The Rock radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
