approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Yves' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Yves Allégret comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Yves Allégret - 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 Yves Allégret" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Yves a little better. This page describes the disguise Allégret 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, Yves Allégret always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Allégret will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Yves Allégret 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. Yves Allégret also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Allégret's environment is very important to Allégret.
Allégret 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. Yves Allégret 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, Yves rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Yves Allégret as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Allégret 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. Yves 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 an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Yves Allégret which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Yves he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Allégret sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Yves Allégret may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Yves should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Allégret may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Yves quite a bit.
Allégret would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. Very impressionable, Yves Allégret has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. He is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
Yves Allégret loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Allégret is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
