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 White comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jack White - 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 White" 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 White wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Jack White always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often White will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Jack White has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Jack White also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in White's environment is very important to White.
White steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Jack White tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Jack rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Jack White as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. White has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Jack may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Jack White seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Jack tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Jack White 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 day-to-day is rather easy for White. Jack White appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Jack White comes across as responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities that encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Jack White was mature for his age.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make White do things that go against his better judgment. Even Jack's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Jack White needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Jack White has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for White to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Jack White tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
