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 Welch comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jack Welch - 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 Welch" 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 Welch 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, Jack Welch 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 Welch, 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. Jack 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 Jack Welch seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Jack dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Welch likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Jack Welch 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 Welch's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Jack Welch 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. Jack Welch 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. Jack 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 Welch shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Jack Welch tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Jack Welch appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Welch understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Jack Welch really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Jack Welch which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Jack is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Jack Welch needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Jack Welch 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.
Welch also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Jack Welch also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Others may see Jack as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Jack Welch could feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Jack Welch believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. His relationships tend to be very harmonious and his participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
