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 Schwartzman comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jason Schwartzman - 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 Schwartzman" 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 Schwartzman 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 Schwartzman always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Schwartzman will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Jason Schwartzman 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 Schwartzman also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Schwartzman's environment is very important to Schwartzman.
Schwartzman 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 Schwartzman 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 Schwartzman as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Schwartzman 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.
He also possesses a lot of aggressive or combative energy, which could be channeled into the martial arts, or some form of disciplined athletic activity, with an emphasis on precision, form, and perfection of skills. Also, he is apt to wield his pen (or tongue) in an aggressive pointed manner! Jason Schwartzman has to try and overcome his tendency to be sharp and sarcastic - it creates more conflict than necessary!
Jason Schwartzman has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and he tends to take himself and life too seriously. He possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. He may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Jason Schwartzman seems authoritarian to others.
Jason Schwartzman is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Jason Schwartzman tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with.

Jason Schwartzman has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
Jason Schwartzman tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and he may feel that he has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by his surroundings. Schwartzman is likely to feel hemmed in and considers dealing with others quite burdensome.
