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 Simpson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jim Simpson - 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 Simpson" 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 Simpson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jim Simpson is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Jim Simpson has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Simpson can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Jim Simpson enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Jim never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Jim Simpson has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Simpson may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Jim Simpson responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Jim does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Simpson will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Simpson's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Jim Simpson becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Jim Simpson tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Jim Simpson seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Jim may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Jim Simpson has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Jim Simpson often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Jim's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Jim Simpson also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Simpson needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
