approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rupert's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Rupert Grint comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rupert Grint - 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 Rupert Grint" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rupert a little better. This page describes the disguise Grint 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 Grint's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Rupert Grint wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Rupert Grint wants, Rupert Grint usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Rupert 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. Rupert Grint 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. Rupert Grint usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Grint approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Rupert Grint 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 Grint. When Rupert Grint 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, Rupert Grint 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 Rupert Grint as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Rupert Grint also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Rupert Grint can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Rupert 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 Grint is around.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Grint do things that go against his better judgment. Even Rupert's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Rupert Grint needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
It may be hard for Rupert Grint to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Grint displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
His attitude toward life is governed by his feelings and Rupert Grint tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Rupert has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Grint for advice.
