approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jimmy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jimmy Boyd comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jimmy Boyd - 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 Jimmy Boyd" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jimmy a little better. This page describes the disguise Boyd wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jimmy Boyd meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Jimmy projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Boyd is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Jimmy Boyd may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Boyd is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Jimmy to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Jimmy Boyd feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Boyd's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Jimmy Boyd it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Jimmy Boyd is not a follower. Others see Jimmy as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Boyd presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Jimmy Boyd which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Jimmy is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Boyd sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Jimmy Boyd may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Jimmy should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Jimmy's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Jimmy Boyd also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Boyd needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Jimmy's personality. Boyd can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Jimmy Boyd may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Boyd must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Jimmy Boyd is. On the other hand, Jimmy Boyd may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
Jimmy Boyd has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Jimmy has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
