approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jack's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jack Jones comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jack Jones - 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 Jack Jones" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jack a little better. This page describes the disguise Jones 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 Jones' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Jack Jones wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Jack Jones wants, Jack Jones usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Jack 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. Jack Jones 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. Jack Jones usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Jones approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Jack Jones 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 Jones. When Jack Jones 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, Jack Jones 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 Jack Jones as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Jack Jones also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
To others, Jack Jones appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Jack that inspired people to rely on him. Jones keeps his cool in most situations.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Jack Jones that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Jones 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.
Jack Jones can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Jack that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Jones is around.
In significant ways, Jones' emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Jack Jones may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Jack Jones is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
