approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Richard's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Richard Gere comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Richard Gere - 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 Richard Gere" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Richard a little better. This page describes the disguise Gere 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 Gere's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Richard Gere wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Richard Gere wants, Richard Gere usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Richard 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. Richard Gere 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. Richard Gere usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Gere approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Richard Gere 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 Gere. When Richard Gere 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, Richard Gere 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 Richard Gere as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Richard Gere also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Richard Gere which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Richard he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Gere 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 though, Richard Gere may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Richard should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Richard Gere 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, Richard Gere seemed mature for his age.
