approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Randy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Randy Jackson comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Randy 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 Randy Jackson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Randy 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.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Randy Jackson will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Randy has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Randy Jackson very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Jackson is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Randy Jackson will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Jackson's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Randy Jackson appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Jackson is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Randy possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Randy Jackson - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Randy Jackson does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Randy.
Others see Randy Jackson as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Jackson shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Randy Jackson usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Randy Jackson has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Randy Jackson often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Randy Jackson appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion, and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. Being overly concerned with appearances and surface beauty is possible; and if so, Randy Jackson may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Randy Jackson appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Randy Jackson seemed mature for his age.
Randy Jackson appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Jackson is unreliable.
