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 Wayne comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner John Wayne - 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 Wayne" 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 Wayne wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, John Wayne likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Wayne must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever John does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
John Wayne also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Wayne will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. John dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Wayne admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When John Wayne befriends someone, Wayne is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - John expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, John Wayne often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
John Wayne has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. John always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. John Wayne also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest John more than anything else. John Wayne feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally John Wayne does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be John's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
Others are attracted to Wayne because of his light-hearted, cheerful and optimistic personality. Very charming, John Wayne is likely to give frequent compliments. He is very affectionate toward others and has a need to be in active relationships with people.
His attitude towards life is governed by his feelings and John Wayne tends to seek cordial understanding with others. John has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Wayne for advice.
