approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Nick's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Nick Lachey comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Nick Lachey - 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 Nick Lachey" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Nick a little better. This page describes the disguise Lachey wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Nick Lachey frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Lachey, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Nick does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Nick Lachey seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Nick dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Lachey likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Nick Lachey respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Lachey's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Nick Lachey has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Nick Lachey spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Nick exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Lachey shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
Nick Lachey 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. Lachey tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Nick Lachey comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Lachey also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Nick Lachey also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Nick Lachey has a tendency to react violently to the influence of his surroundings and to throw himself headlong into everything he does, suffering the consequences later on. Until Nick learns to alter his conduct, there are likely to be many upsets in his relationships.
