approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ryan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ryan Reynolds comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ryan Reynolds - 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 Ryan Reynolds" 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 Reynolds wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Ryan Reynolds is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Ryan tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Reynolds' way of dealing with problems.
Ryan Reynolds may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Reynolds' emotional balance and well-being.
Ryan Reynolds is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Ryan Reynolds probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Reynolds' imagination and fantasy was also very real to Reynolds, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Reynolds' sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Reynolds will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Ryan Reynolds overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Reynolds' strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Ryan through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Reynolds' more rational friends. Ryan Reynolds certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Ryan Reynolds has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Ryan Reynolds to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Ryan Reynolds is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Ryan Reynolds tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
Ryan Reynolds appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition to assess people, others sense that Reynolds understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Ryan Reynolds really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Ryan Reynolds is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Ryan radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Ryan that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Ryan Reynolds may be on the surface, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Ryan has causes, passions or desires that drive him and when one of these is aroused Reynolds is quite zealous in his pursuit or defense of it.
