approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Winston's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Winston Churchill comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Winston Churchill - 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 Winston Churchill" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Winston a little better. This page describes the disguise Churchill 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, Winston Churchill always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Churchill will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Winston Churchill 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. Winston Churchill also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Churchill's environment is very important to Churchill.
Churchill 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. Winston Churchill 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, Winston rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Winston Churchill as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Churchill 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. Winston 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.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Winston's personality. Churchill can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Winston Churchill may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Churchill must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Winston Churchill is. On the other hand, Winston Churchill may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Winston Churchill has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
Winston Churchill tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Winston does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
