Jesse L. Martin
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jesse's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jesse L. Martin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jesse L. Martin - 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 Jesse L. Martin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jesse a little better. This page describes the disguise Martin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jesse L. Martin has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Martin as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Jesse does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Jesse L. Martin is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Martin can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Martin has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Jesse L. Martin appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Jesse often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Jesse is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Martin's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Jesse L. Martin has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Martin is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Jesse L. Martin could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Martin may wish he were not so easy to read.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Martin do things that go against his better judgment. Even Jesse's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Jesse L. Martin needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Jesse L. Martin does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Jesse's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
