Even when he is in a position of authority, Montand seeks the opinions of others before acting. Inside he may feel more indecisive or concerned with what other people think than his confident, proud bearing would suggest.

His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
