approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Johnny's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Johnny Zander comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Johnny Zander - 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 Johnny Zander" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Johnny a little better. This page describes the disguise Zander wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Johnny Zander 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. Zander 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 Johnny does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Johnny Zander 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. Zander will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Johnny dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Zander admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Johnny Zander befriends someone, Zander 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 - Johnny expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Johnny Zander 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.
Johnny Zander has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Johnny always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Johnny Zander 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 Johnny more than anything else. Johnny Zander feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Johnny Zander makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Zander. Johnny Zander appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
He is very receptive to the influence of his environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use him. Johnny Zander has the ability to tune into the events around him, but he also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
Johnny Zander is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, Zander also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Johnny Zander does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
