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 Carter comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jimmy Carter - 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 Carter" 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 Carter wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Jimmy Carter will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Jimmy has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Jimmy Carter very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Carter is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Jimmy Carter will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Carter's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Jimmy Carter appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Carter is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Jimmy possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Jimmy Carter - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Jimmy Carter does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Jimmy.
Others see Jimmy Carter as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Carter shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Jimmy Carter usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Jimmy Carter is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Jimmy radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Jimmy Carter has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Jimmy coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Jimmy Carter is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Carter seems to need others' approval first.
Jimmy Carter feels good about himself and enjoys good relationships with his friends and neighbors. He exchanges ideas with them in a very relaxed and open manner, always willing to learn more about himself, the world and other people.
