approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Josh's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Josh Homme comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Josh Homme - 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 Josh Homme" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Josh a little better. This page describes the disguise Homme wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Josh Homme 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. Homme 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 Josh does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Josh Homme 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. Homme will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Josh dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Homme admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Josh Homme befriends someone, Homme 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 - Josh expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated.

Josh always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable.
