approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mick Mars comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mick Mars - 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 Mick Mars" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mick a little better. This page describes the disguise Mars wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Mick Mars likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Mars must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Mick does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Mick Mars also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Mars will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Mick dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Mars admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Mick Mars befriends someone, Mars is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Mick expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Mick Mars often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Mick Mars has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Mick always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Mick Mars also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Mick more than anything else. Mick Mars feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Mick Mars has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Mick Mars often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
