approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Jörg's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Jörg Haider comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Jörg Haider - 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 Jörg Haider" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Jörg a little better. This page describes the disguise Haider wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Jörg Haider 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. Jörg 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. Haider tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Haider.
Haider 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, Jörg Haider 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 Jörg'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 Jörg 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. Jörg Haider empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Jörg Haider 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. Jörg Haider communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Jörg never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Jörg into trouble. Jörg Haider tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Jörg Haider needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
His emotional instincts, feelings, and intuition play a big part in the decisions Jörg Haider 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 Haider. Jörg Haider appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
The image that Jörg Haider projects to the world and the person he really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Jörg may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression Haider makes may actually be misleading. Within him, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Jörg Haider often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of his.
