approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of John's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way John Belushi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Belushi - 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 John Belushi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know John a little better. This page describes the disguise Belushi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, John Belushi frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Belushi, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. John does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others John Belushi seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. John dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Belushi likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
John Belushi respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Belushi's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
John Belushi has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. John Belushi spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. John exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Belushi shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Belushi may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that John Belushi is always a bit off center.
John Belushi also come across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
To others, John Belushi appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about John that inspired people to rely on him. Belushi keeps his cool in most situations.
John Belushi tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to him. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
