Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Ryan Adams" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ryan a little better. This page describes the disguise Adams wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Ryan Adams frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Adams, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Ryan does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Ryan Adams seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Ryan dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones.

Ryan Adams respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people.

Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Adams shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
