approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of James' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way James Stacy comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner James Stacy - 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 Stacy" 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 Stacy wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
James Stacy meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, James projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Stacy is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. James Stacy may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Stacy is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables James to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, James Stacy feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Stacy's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To James Stacy it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. James Stacy is not a follower. Others see James as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Stacy presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, James Stacy has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, James Stacy often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
James Stacy 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, Stacy can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
He may find it difficult to get ahead because James lacks the vitality to do so. James Stacy tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining himself too much. Quite often, though, his plans just seem to hang in the air.
