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 Osmond comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jimmy Osmond - 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 Osmond" 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 Osmond wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jimmy Osmond has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Osmond as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Jimmy does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Jimmy Osmond is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Osmond can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Osmond has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Jimmy Osmond appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Jimmy often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Jimmy is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Osmond's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Jimmy Osmond has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Osmond is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
He is mentally active and restless and he likes to talk, communicate, and exchange ideas with others. Jimmy Osmond expresses himself well, and is suited to activities that involve presenting ideas to other people, such as teaching and sales.
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Jimmy Osmond, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Jimmy seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and overly forceful approach get Jimmy into trouble. Jimmy Osmond tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Jimmy Osmond needs to moderate his temper in order to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Jimmy Osmond appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Osmond understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Jimmy Osmond really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Jimmy Osmond has a tendency to react violently to the influence of his surroundings and to throw himself headlong into everything he does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Jimmy learns to alter his conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in his relationships.
Jimmy Osmond tends to think of work as a hard and necessary chore and he may feel that he has little freedom of movement because of pressure caused by his surroundings. Osmond is likely to feel hemmed in and considers dealing with others quite burdensome.
Jimmy Osmond tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Osmond comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
