approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Peter's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Peter Jackson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Peter Jackson - 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 Peter Jackson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Peter a little better. This page describes the disguise Jackson wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Peter Jackson 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 Jackson 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. Peter does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Peter Jackson 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. Jackson 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 Jackson 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. Peter Jackson 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, Peter 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. Peter 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 Jackson'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.
Peter Jackson 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. Jackson 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.
Jackson draws much of his energy and sense of self from his relationships with others. He is inextricably connected with the significant others in his life; Peter Jackson may feel at a loss without them, even if he appears to be the powerful or dominant person in the relationship. Peter appears self-assured - as long as he is secure in the important relationships in his life.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Peter Jackson could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Jackson may wish he were not so easy to read.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Peter Jackson that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Jackson tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Peter Jackson is intellectually competitive, fond of debating with others and may have some stormy proceedings. Peter presents his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
