approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Spike's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Spike Jonze comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Spike Jonze - 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 Spike Jonze" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Spike a little better. This page describes the disguise Jonze wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Spike loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Spike Jonze has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Spike Jonze tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Spike Jonze loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Spike Jonze has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Spike Jonze cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Spike and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Spike Jonze gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Jonze likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Spike Jonze as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Spike Jonze could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Jonze may wish he was not so easy to read.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Spike Jonze which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Spike he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Jonze sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Spike Jonze may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Spike should avoid looking always on the dark side.
He may find it difficult to get ahead because Spike lacks the vitality to do so. Spike Jonze tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining himself too much. Quite often, though, his plans just seem to hang in the air.
Spike Jonze has a strong need to influence others and to dominate his home or environment. He is likely to join associations with large groups of people and some of Jonze's relationships will be very important to him and possibly affect his future.
