approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mark Calaway's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way The Undertaker comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner The Undertaker - 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 Undertaker" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mark Calaway a little better. This page describes the disguise Mark Callous wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
The Undertaker appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Mark Calaway has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Mark Callous tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Mark Callous.
Mark Callous approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, The Undertaker is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Mark Calaway's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Mark Calaway and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. The Undertaker empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and The Undertaker is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. The Undertaker communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Mark Calaway never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
To others, The Undertaker appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Mark Calaway that inspired people to rely on him. Mark Callous keeps his cool in most situations.
He is assertive and bold. The Undertaker is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Mark Calaway generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, The Undertaker's boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
The Undertaker comes across as unusual, highly independent, and free spirited. There is a touch of brilliance and creative genius in his demeanor. He is also restless and easily distracted, and tends to fly from one thing to another, which may leave the impression that Mark Callous is unreliable.
