approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Marshall's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Eminem comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Eminem - 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 Eminem" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Marshall a little better. This page describes the disguise Mathers wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Marshall 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. Eminem 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. Eminem 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. Eminem 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. Eminem has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom-loving and independent, Eminem 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 Marshall 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 Eminem 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. Mathers 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 Eminem 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.
Eminem seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Marshall may appear standoffish, as if he judges them from afar.
Eminem appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Eminem may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Eminem makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets on a day to day level is rather easy for Mathers. Eminem appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Eminem appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Mathers is unreliable.
Eminem loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Mathers is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
Eminem has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Marshall wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
