Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Julian Casablancas" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Julian a little better. This page describes the disguise Casablancas 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 Casablancas' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Julian Casablancas wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Julian Casablancas wants, Julian Casablancas usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Julian 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. Julian Casablancas 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. Julian Casablancas usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Casablancas approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Julian Casablancas 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 Casablancas. When Julian Casablancas 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, Julian Casablancas 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 Julian Casablancas as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Julian Casablancas also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Julian learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. All is well on the surface, but when trouble arises, Julian Casablancas seems childish and needy. When he is in calmer waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in others.
Julian Casablancas tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. Julian should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to avoid misunderstandings or disappointments.
