approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jason's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jason Patric comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jason Patric - 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 Jason Patric" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jason a little better. This page describes the disguise Patric 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, Jason Patric always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Patric will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Jason Patric 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. Jason Patric also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Patric's environment is very important to Patric.
Patric 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. Jason Patric 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, Jason rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Jason Patric as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Patric 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. Jason 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.
Although he has a realistic and conservative outlook in many ways, Jason Patric nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original and a free thinker. Patric can be a very effective reformer, working within the system to make it better. Jason Patric often feels frustrated by inefficiency and poor moral conduct in institutions and organizations. Patric's contributions are probably more significant and the ensuing improvements more important than Jason Patric gives himself credit for.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Jason Patric tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Jason does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Jason Patric could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Patric may wish he was not so easy to read.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Jason into trouble. Jason Patric tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Jason Patric needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Jason has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Jason Patric is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Patric must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Jason Patric comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Patric also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Jason Patric also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Jason Patric has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Jason wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
He is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Jason Patric needs his freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Jason has a strong desire to exceed his limits, even if it means having to use force.
