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 Morrison comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jim Morrison - 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 Morrison" 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 Morrison wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Jim Morrison is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Morrison sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Jim's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Jim Morrison himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Jim Morrison is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Jim Morrison is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Morrison probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Morrison's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Jim Morrison as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Jim does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Jim Morrison is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Jim Morrison is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Jim Morrison needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Morrison's work or outside social activities.
At times Jim Morrison comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Morrison's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Jim Morrison irresistibly.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Jim Morrison could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Morrison may wish he was not so easy to read.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Jim Morrison is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Jim radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Jim Morrison can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Jim that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Morrison is around.
His family conditions may have been a bit oppressive, adding a note of gravity to Jim's personality. Somewhat insecure, Jim Morrison may feel that others restrain him. He has doubts about mankind in general and a fear of failure.
