approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Juan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Juan Trippe comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Juan Trippe - 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 Juan Trippe" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Juan a little better. This page describes the disguise Trippe wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Juan Trippe will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Juan has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Juan Trippe very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Trippe is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Juan Trippe will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Trippe's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Juan Trippe appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Trippe is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Juan possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Juan Trippe - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Juan Trippe does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Juan.
Others see Juan Trippe as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Trippe shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Juan Trippe usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Juan Trippe has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Juan Trippe often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Juan Trippe appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Trippe is unreliable.
In significant ways, Trippe's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Juan Trippe may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Juan Trippe is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Trippe is likely to go his own way in life and he ha a tendency to keep secluded from others. Always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas, Juan Trippe gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
