Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner John Lennon" 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 Lennon wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
John Lennon 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, John 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. Lennon 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. John Lennon 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.
Lennon 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 John to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, John Lennon 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 Lennon's forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To John Lennon 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. John Lennon is not a follower. Others see John as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Lennon presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Lennon draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; John Lennon may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. John appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, John Lennon is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. John present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
He is likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for his efforts. John Lennon may even achieve a degree of celebrity in his sphere and would make an excellent politician.
