approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Woody's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Woody Allen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Woody Allen - 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 Woody Allen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Woody a little better. This page describes the disguise Allen 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, Woody Allen always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Allen will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Woody Allen 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. Woody Allen also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Allen's environment is very important to Allen.
Allen 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. Woody Allen 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, Woody rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Woody Allen as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Allen 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. Woody 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.
Woody Allen seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Woody may appear standoffish, as if he judges them from afar.

Woody Allen has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Woody will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Allen can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Woody Allen appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Allen infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Woody Allen does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
