approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of James' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way James Spader comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner James Spader - 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 Spader" 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 Spader 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, James Spader always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Spader will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
James Spader 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. James Spader also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Spader's environment is very important to Spader.
Spader 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. James Spader 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, James rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see James Spader as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Spader 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. James 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.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and James Spader 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 Spader may wish he were not so easy to read.
James Spader has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, James will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Spader can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who James Spader is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. James radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
He is very sociable, has a harmonious disposition, and is able to have happy relationships with people in his environment. His eternal optimism brings James Spader the affinity of many people with whom he will have many joyful experiences.
