approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Wayne's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Wayne Knight comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Wayne Knight - 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 Wayne Knight" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Wayne a little better. This page describes the disguise Knight 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, Wayne Knight 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. Wayne has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Wayne Knight very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Knight is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Wayne Knight will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Knight'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. Wayne Knight 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 Knight is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Wayne 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 Wayne Knight - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Wayne Knight 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 Wayne.
Others see Wayne Knight as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Knight 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 Wayne Knight usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Wayne Knight comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Knight tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Wayne has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Wayne's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
In significant ways, Knight's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Wayne Knight may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Wayne Knight is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
