approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kid Rock's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kid Rock comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kid Rock - 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 Kid Rock" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kid Rock a little better. This page describes the disguise Robert Ritchie wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kid Rock has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Robert Ritchie as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Kid Rock does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Kid Rock is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Robert Ritchie can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Robert Ritchie has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Kid Rock appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Kid Rock often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Kid Rock is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Robert Ritchie's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Kid Rock has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Robert Ritchie is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Kid Rock's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Kid Rock also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Robert Ritchie needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
In significant ways, Robert Ritchie's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Kid Rock may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Kid Rock 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.
At times his desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Robert Ritchie does things that go against his better judgment. Even Kid Rock's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Kid Rock needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Kid Rock's personality. Robert Ritchie can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Kid Rock may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Robert Ritchie must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Kid Rock is. On the other hand, Kid Rock may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Kid Rock that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Kid Rock may be on the surface, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Kid Rock has causes, passions, or desires that drive him and when one of these is aroused Robert Ritchie is quite zealous in his pursuit or defense of it.
Kid Rock has an open and cheerful manner and attracts attention because of his good taste in clothing, hairdo and general well kept appearance. Kid Rock has the ability to create a harmonious environment and relationships and he is happy and confident in the company of others.
Kid Rock has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, his emotional state depends a lot on the influence of his immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason others may see Kid Rock as a somewhat unstable person.
Other people may consider his environment a bit strange and Robert Ritchie likes to surround himself with a certain air of mystery. Kid Rock tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert his power from behind the scenes.
