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 Carrey comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jim Carrey - 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 Jim Carrey" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jim a little better. This page describes the disguise Carrey wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Carrey's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Jim Carrey wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Jim Carrey wants, Jim Carrey usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Jim wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Jim Carrey functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Jim Carrey usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Carrey approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Jim Carrey also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Carrey. When Jim Carrey commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Jim Carrey is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Jim Carrey as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Jim Carrey also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.

Jim Carrey 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, Jim will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Carrey can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
He is assertive and bold. Jim Carrey is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Jim generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Jim Carrey's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
In significant ways, Carrey's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Jim Carrey may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Jim Carrey is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
