approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Julio's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Julio Iglesias comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Julio Iglesias - 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 Julio Iglesias" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Julio a little better. This page describes the disguise Iglesias 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 Iglesias' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Julio Iglesias wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Julio Iglesias wants, Julio Iglesias usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Julio 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. Julio Iglesias 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. Julio Iglesias usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Iglesias approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Julio Iglesias 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 Iglesias. When Julio Iglesias 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, Julio Iglesias 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 Julio Iglesias as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Julio Iglesias also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Julio Iglesias which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Julio he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Iglesias sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Julio Iglesias may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Julio should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Julio Iglesias has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Julio coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Julio Iglesias is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Iglesias seems to need others' approval first.
