approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Michael's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Michael Jackson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Michael Jackson - 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 Michael Jackson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Michael a little better. This page describes the disguise Jackson 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 Jackson's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Michael Jackson wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Michael Jackson wants, Michael Jackson usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Michael 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. Michael Jackson 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. Michael Jackson usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Jackson approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Michael Jackson 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 Jackson. When Michael Jackson 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, Michael Jackson 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 Michael Jackson as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Michael Jackson also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Michael Jackson appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Michael Jackson may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Michael Jackson seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Jackson tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Michael Jackson appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Jackson understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Michael Jackson really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
