approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brendan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Brendan Fraser comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brendan Fraser - 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 Brendan Fraser" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brendan a little better. This page describes the disguise Fraser wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Brendan Fraser has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Fraser as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Brendan does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Brendan Fraser is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Fraser can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Fraser has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Brendan Fraser appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Brendan often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Brendan is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Fraser's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Brendan Fraser has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Fraser is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
The initial impression Fraser makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Brendan thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Brendan Fraser may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Brendan Fraser tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
