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 Lee comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bruce Lee - 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 Lee" 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 Lee wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Bruce loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Bruce Lee has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Bruce Lee tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Bruce Lee loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Bruce Lee has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom-loving and independent, Bruce Lee cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Bruce and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Bruce Lee gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Lee likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Bruce Lee as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
Bruce Lee 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 Lee tends to dominate in relationships and to be oblivious to others' points of view if they differ very much from Lee's own.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Bruce Lee that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Lee tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
At times his desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Lee does things that go against his better judgment. Even Bruce's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Bruce Lee needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
