approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Shia's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Shia LaBeouf comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Shia LaBeouf - 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 Shia LaBeouf" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Shia a little better. This page describes the disguise LaBeouf wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Shia LaBeouf is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. LaBeouf sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Shia's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Shia LaBeouf himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Shia LaBeouf is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Shia LaBeouf is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. LaBeouf probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of LaBeouf's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Shia LaBeouf as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Shia does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Shia LaBeouf is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Shia LaBeouf is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Shia LaBeouf needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to LaBeouf's work or outside social activities.
In significant ways, LaBeouf's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Shia LaBeouf may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside, maybe even be ashamed of them.
When Shia LaBeouf is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
