Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Ryan Ross" 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 Ross 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 Ross' quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Ryan Ross wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Ryan Ross wants, Ryan Ross usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Ryan 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. Ryan Ross 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. Ryan Ross usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Ross approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Ryan Ross 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 Ross. When Ryan Ross 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, Ryan Ross 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.
