approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mikey's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mikey Way comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mikey Way - 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 Mikey Way" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mikey a little better. This page describes the disguise Way 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 Way's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Mikey Way wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Mikey Way wants, Mikey Way usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Mikey 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. Mikey Way 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. Mikey Way usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Way approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Mikey Way 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 Way. When Mikey Way 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, Mikey Way 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 Mikey Way as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Mikey Way also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Mikey Way identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever he wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Mikey Way as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
Mikey Way can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Mikey that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Way is around.
Way projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Mikey Way generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Mikey somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Mikey Way emanates.
