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 Jenner comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bruce Jenner - 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 Jenner" 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 Jenner wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Jenner's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Bruce Jenner wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Bruce Jenner wants, Bruce Jenner usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Bruce wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Bruce Jenner functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Bruce Jenner usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Jenner approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Bruce Jenner also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Jenner. When Bruce Jenner commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Bruce Jenner is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Bruce Jenner as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Bruce Jenner also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Bruce Jenner appears confident and self-assured and he makes a clear, strong impression on others. He is very concerned with the impact he makes on others and with getting personal recognition, sometimes too much so. Bruce Jenner tends to dominate in relationships and to be oblivious to others' points of view if they differ very much from Jenner's own.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Bruce Jenner could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Jenner may wish he was not so easy to read.
Bruce Jenner appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Jenner infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Bruce Jenner does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
He is assertive and bold. Bruce Jenner is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Bruce generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Bruce Jenner's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Bruce Jenner tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
He is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in his environment. His eternal optimism brings Bruce Jenner the affinity of many people with whom he will have many joyful experiences.
