approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lance's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Lance Armstrong comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lance Armstrong - 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 Lance Armstrong" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lance a little better. This page describes the disguise Armstrong 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 Armstrong's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Lance Armstrong wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Lance Armstrong wants, Lance Armstrong usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Lance 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. Lance Armstrong 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. Lance Armstrong usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Armstrong approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Lance Armstrong 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 Armstrong. When Lance Armstrong 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, Lance Armstrong 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 Lance Armstrong as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Lance Armstrong also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Lance Armstrong can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Lance that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Armstrong is around.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Lance Armstrong is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Lance present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
Lance Armstrong tends to lead a very harmonious life and live in peaceful surroundings. His emotions seem to play a big part in his relationships with others and Armstrong bases his relationships on inner understanding between people.
