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 Carson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Johnny Carson - 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 Carson" 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 Carson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Carson's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Johnny Carson wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Johnny Carson wants, Johnny Carson usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Johnny wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Johnny Carson functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Johnny Carson usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Carson approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Johnny Carson also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Carson. When Johnny Carson commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Johnny Carson is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Johnny Carson as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Johnny Carson also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Johnny Carson has a penetrating intellect and a probing desire to uncover others' deeper motives or the hidden truth about any matter. He is intense and totally disinterested in shallow conversation, and can make some people uncomfortable. Johnny often comes across as a bit caustic or sarcastic, even when he does not mean to.
Johnny has an adept and competent manner and the ability to express himself well. Johnny Carson likes to be in touch with people and is eager to share his views with them. His ability to give and receive mental stimulation invites many fruitful conversations and relationships.
Johnny Carson has a tendency to live in a world of his own, a world that is likely to be far from reality. Johnny wants to make a big impression, and with his dazzling personality he knows how to put on a brilliant show.
