approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jermaine's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jermaine Jackson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jermaine Jackson - 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 Jermaine Jackson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jermaine a little better. This page describes the disguise Jackson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Jermaine Jackson is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Jermaine tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Jackson's way of dealing with problems.
Jermaine Jackson may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Jackson's emotional balance and well-being.
Jermaine Jackson is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Jermaine Jackson probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Jackson's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Jackson, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Jackson's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Jackson will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Jermaine Jackson overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Jackson's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Jermaine through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Jackson's more rational friends. Jermaine Jackson certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Jermaine Jackson has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Jermaine Jackson to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Jermaine Jackson 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, Jermaine Jackson often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Jermaine Jackson appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Jackson understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Jermaine Jackson really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Jermaine has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Jermaine Jackson is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Jackson must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
To others, Jermaine Jackson appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Jermaine that inspired people to rely on him. Jackson keeps his cool in most situations.
