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 Cusack comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Cusack - 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 Cusack" 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 Cusack wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, John Cusack always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Cusack will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
John Cusack has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. John Cusack also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Cusack's environment is very important to Cusack.
Cusack steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. John Cusack tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, John rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see John Cusack as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Cusack has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. John may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
John Cusack 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, John may appear standoffish, as if he judges them from afar.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get John into trouble. John Cusack 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. John Cusack needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Cusack's intellect and his emotions are well balanced. John has the ability to manage his feelings superbly and have a cautious, adaptable and open way about him. John Cusack likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
He is very receptive to the influence of his environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use him. John Cusack has the ability to tune into the events around him, but he also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
