approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jerry's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jerry Lucas comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jerry Lucas - 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 Jerry Lucas" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jerry a little better. This page describes the disguise Lucas wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Jerry Lucas frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Lucas, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Jerry does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Jerry Lucas seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Jerry dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Lucas likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Jerry Lucas respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Lucas' guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Jerry Lucas has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Jerry Lucas spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Jerry exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Lucas shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Jerry Lucas has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Jerry will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Lucas can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Jerry has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Jerry Lucas is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Lucas must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
Jerry Lucas comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Lucas infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Jerry Lucas does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Jerry Lucas which draws people in need to him.
