approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jeb's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jeb Bush comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jeb Bush - 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 Jeb Bush" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jeb a little better. This page describes the disguise Bush 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, Jeb Bush always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Bush will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Jeb Bush 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. Jeb Bush also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Bush's environment is very important to Bush.
Bush 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. Jeb Bush 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, Jeb rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Jeb Bush as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Bush 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. Jeb 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.
Jeb Bush appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Bush understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Jeb Bush really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
The image that Jeb Bush projects to the world and the person he really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Jeb may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Bush makes may actually be misleading. Within him, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Jeb Bush often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of his.
Jeb Bush tends to be extremely hard on himself and others. He may have been brought up under difficult circumstances and now feels that life is very tough. Jeb does his duty, expects the same from others, and has no pity for anyone.
Other people may consider his environment a bit strange and Bush likes to surround himself with a certain air of mystery. Jeb Bush tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert his power from behind the scenes.
