approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bruce's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bruce Cabot comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bruce Cabot - 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 Bruce Cabot" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bruce a little better. This page describes the disguise Cabot wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Bruce Cabot likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Cabot must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Bruce does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Bruce Cabot also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Cabot will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Bruce dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Cabot admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Bruce Cabot befriends someone, Cabot is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Bruce expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Bruce Cabot often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
