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 Nolte comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Nick Nolte - 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 Nolte" 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 Nolte wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Nick Nolte has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Nolte as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Nick does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Nick Nolte is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Nolte can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Nolte has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Nick Nolte appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Nick often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Nick is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Nolte's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Nick Nolte has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Nolte is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Nick Nolte radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. He likes himself and it shows. He expects success in life and he generally achieves it. However, Nolte also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate himself, and he can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Nick Nolte has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and he tends to take himself and life too seriously. He possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. He may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Nick Nolte seems authoritarian to others.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Nick Nolte which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Nick is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Nolte sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Nick Nolte may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Nick should avoid always looking on the dark side.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Nick Nolte makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Nolte. Nick Nolte appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Nick Nolte 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.
Nolte also needs to be busy and active and he moves quickly. Nick Nolte also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Nolte's intellect and emotions are well balanced. Nick has the ability to manage his feelings superbly and has a cautious, adaptable and open way about him. Nick Nolte likes to associate with the public and has an understanding for the "man on the street".
Nick Nolte tends to be somewhat insecure in his relationships with other people and he strives for safety and security in his life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Nick, and he has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
