approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Trent's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Trent Reznor comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Trent Reznor - 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 Trent Reznor" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Trent a little better. This page describes the disguise Reznor 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, Trent Reznor 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 Reznor, 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. Trent 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 Trent Reznor seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Trent dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Reznor likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Trent Reznor 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. A wise mentor or father is often Reznor's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Trent Reznor has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Trent Reznor spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Trent exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Reznor shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Trent Reznor is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Trent radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
Trent Reznor appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Reznor infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Trent Reznor does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Trent Reznor that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, Reznor tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Trent Reznor often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
