approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Walt's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Walt Disney comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Walt Disney - 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 Walt Disney" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Walt a little better. This page describes the disguise Disney wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Walt Disney always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Disney will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Walt Disney has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Walt Disney also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Disney's environment is very important to Disney.
Disney steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Walt Disney tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Walt rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Walt Disney as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Disney has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Walt may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Walt Disney is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Walt Disney tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
Walt has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Walt Disney is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Disney must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Walt Disney comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Disney also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Walt Disney also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
