approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ike's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ike Turner comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ike Turner - 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 Ike Turner" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ike a little better. This page describes the disguise Turner wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Ike Turner frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Turner, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Ike does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Ike Turner seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Ike dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Turner likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Ike Turner respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Turner's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Ike Turner has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Ike Turner spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Ike exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Turner shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
At times Ike Turner comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Turner's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Ike Turner irresistibly.
Ike Turner comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Turner also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Ike Turner also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Ike Turner has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Ike coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Ike Turner is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Turner seems to need others' approval first.
Ike Turner tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Turner bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
