approach to life and appearances
Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
The following is a description of Maurice's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Maurice Gibb comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Maurice Gibb - 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 Maurice Gibb" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Maurice a little better. This page describes the disguise Gibb 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 Gibb's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Maurice Gibb wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Maurice Gibb wants, Maurice Gibb usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Maurice 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. Maurice Gibb 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. Maurice Gibb usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Gibb approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Maurice Gibb 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 Gibb. When Maurice Gibb 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, Maurice Gibb 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 Maurice Gibb as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Maurice Gibb also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Maurice Gibb 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, Maurice will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Gibb can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Maurice Gibb comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Gibb infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Maurice Gibb does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
