approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jim's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jim Sturgess comes across, the face he shows to the world.

This page describes the disguise Sturgess wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Jim Sturgess likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Sturgess must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Jim does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Jim Sturgess also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way.
