approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Robin's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Robin Gibb comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Robin Gibb - 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 Robin Gibb" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Robin a little better. This page describes the disguise Gibb 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 Gibb's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Robin Gibb wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Robin Gibb wants, Robin Gibb usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Robin 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. Robin Gibb 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. Robin Gibb usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Gibb approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Robin Gibb 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 Gibb. When Robin Gibb 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, Robin Gibb 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 Robin Gibb as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Robin Gibb also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Robin Gibb 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 Gibb may wish he were not so easy to read.
Robin Gibb has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Robin will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Gibb can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Robin Gibb comes across as liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Gibb infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Robin Gibb does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Robin Gibb can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Robin that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Gibb is around.
His life is never a secret to anyone, for Gibb likes to publicize his plans and let people know exactly where he stands. Others are drawn to Robin Gibb because of his conversational ability and people may often seek his advice.
