approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jackie's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jackie Martling comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jackie Martling - 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 Jackie Martling" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jackie a little better. This page describes the disguise Martling wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jackie Martling is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Jackie Martling has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Martling can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Jackie Martling enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Jackie never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Jackie Martling has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Martling may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Jackie Martling responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Jackie does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Martling will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Martling's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Jackie Martling becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Jackie Martling tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Jackie Martling could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Martling may wish he were not so easy to read.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Jackie Martling which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Jackie is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Jackie Martling needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Jackie has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Jackie's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Martling do things that go against his better judgment. Even Jackie's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Jackie Martling needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Jackie Martling seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Jackie Martling should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
