approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of James' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way James Blunt comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner James Blunt - 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 James Blunt" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know James a little better. This page describes the disguise Blunt wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
James Blunt appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. James has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Blunt tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Blunt.
Blunt approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, James Blunt is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color James' thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for James and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. James Blunt empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and James Blunt is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. James Blunt communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
James never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about James Blunt which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that James he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Blunt sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, James Blunt may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. James should avoid looking always on the dark side.
James Blunt radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Blunt when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
James Blunt appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Blunt understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time James Blunt really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. James Blunt changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Blunt is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
James Blunt has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
James Blunt seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
