approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jared's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jared Leto comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jared Leto - 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 Jared Leto" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jared a little better. This page describes the disguise Leto wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jared Leto 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, Jared 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. Leto 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. Jared Leto 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.
Leto 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 Jared to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Jared Leto 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 Leto's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Jared Leto 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. Jared Leto is not a follower. Others see Jared as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Leto presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Jared Leto tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
At times Jared Leto comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Leto's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Jared Leto irresistibly.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Jared Leto 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, Jared Leto often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about Jared Leto which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Jared is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Jared Leto needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
Jared Leto has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Jared coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Jared Leto is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Leto seems to need others' approval first.
Jared Leto appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Jared Leto seemed mature for his age.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Jared Leto tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
