approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of James' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way James Cameron comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner James Cameron - 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 Cameron" 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 Cameron 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 Cameron's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When James Cameron wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what James Cameron wants, James Cameron usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. James 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. James Cameron 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. James Cameron usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Cameron approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. James Cameron 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 Cameron. When James Cameron 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, James Cameron 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 James Cameron as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. James Cameron also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
James Cameron has a great fear of losing control or letting down his guard, which prevents him from opening up to other people.
Expressing himself in an open, non-defensive way does not come easily to Cameron, and at times he feels like a pressure cooker, holding a great deal of his passionate feelings and drives inside. Because he does not share his deepest self readily, James may begin to believe that the feelings he has are uncommon and even shameful or evil. James Cameron tends to think the worst of himself. He projects a secretive, dark, mysterious, or "bad" image to others.
On the positive side, James Cameron is capable of enormous discipline and serious, sustained effort in whatever area he chooses.
Cameron would like to embrace the whole world and is everyone's favorite. James Cameron is very impressionable, has an inner feeling for others and can easily establish relationships with everyone. He is likely to have a busy social life and also enjoys working in group activities.
James Cameron has a strong need to influence others and to dominate his home or environment. He is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Cameron's relationships will be very important to him and possibly affect his future.
