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 Travolta comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Travolta - 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 Travolta" 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 Travolta wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
John Travolta appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. John has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Travolta tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Travolta.
Travolta approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, John Travolta is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color John's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for John and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. John Travolta empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and John Travolta is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. John Travolta communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
John never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
John Travolta is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as John Travolta tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
The image that John Travolta projects to the world and the person he really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times John may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Travolta makes may actually be misleading. Within him, also, there is much complexity and tension, and John Travolta often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of his.
John has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. John has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
