approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Lloyd's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Lloyd Bridges comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Lloyd Bridges - 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 Lloyd Bridges" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Lloyd a little better. This page describes the disguise Bridges wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Lloyd Bridges meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Lloyd projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Bridges is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Lloyd Bridges may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Bridges is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Lloyd to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Lloyd Bridges feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Bridges' forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Lloyd Bridges it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Lloyd Bridges is not a follower. Others see Lloyd as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Bridges presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Lloyd Bridges seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Lloyd tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Lloyd into trouble. Lloyd Bridges tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Lloyd Bridges needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Lloyd Bridges has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Lloyd will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Bridges can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Lloyd Bridges 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 Bridges is unreliable.
