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 Robards comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jason Robards - 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 Robards" 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 Robards wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Jason Robards will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Jason has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Jason Robards very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Robards is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Jason Robards will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Robards' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Jason Robards appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Robards is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Jason possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Jason Robards - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Jason Robards does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Jason.
Others see Jason Robards as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Robards shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Jason Robards usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Jason Robards 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, Jason Robards often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Robards is charming and very affectionate, and he expresses his feelings vivaciously. Love comes naturally to Jason Robards; he seems to be tuned into love from head to toe. Jason loves to go out and have a good time and little gestures of adoration are important to him.
