approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mike's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mike Jones comes across, the face he shows to the world.

Mike Jones 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, Mike projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others.

Jones 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. Mike Jones 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.

He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Mike to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Mike Jones 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 Jones' forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures.
