approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Elijah's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Elijah Wood comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Elijah Wood - 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 Elijah Wood" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Elijah a little better. This page describes the disguise Wood wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Elijah Wood 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 Wood 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. Elijah does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Elijah Wood 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. Wood 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 Wood 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. Elijah Wood 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, Elijah 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. Elijah 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 Wood'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.
Elijah Wood 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. Wood 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.
Wood may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Elijah Wood is always a bit off center.
Elijah Wood also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Elijah Wood seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Elijah tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Elijah into trouble. Elijah Wood tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Elijah Wood needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Elijah that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Elijah Wood may be on the surface, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Elijah has causes, passions, or desires that drive him and when one of these is aroused Wood is quite zealous in his pursuit or defense of it.
