approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jon Stewart comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jon Stewart - 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 Jon Stewart" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jon a little better. This page describes the disguise Stewart wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Jon Stewart is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Stewart sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Jon's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Jon Stewart himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Jon Stewart is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Jon Stewart is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Stewart probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Stewart's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Jon Stewart as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Jon does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Jon Stewart is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Jon Stewart is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Jon Stewart needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Stewart's work or outside social activities.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Jon Stewart likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Stewart may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Stewart's challenge.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Jon Stewart 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 on a day to day level is rather easy for Stewart. Jon Stewart appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
