approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tupac's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tupac Shakur comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tupac Shakur - 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 Tupac Shakur" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tupac a little better. This page describes the disguise Shakur wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Tupac Shakur has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Shakur as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Tupac does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Tupac Shakur is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Shakur can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Shakur has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Tupac Shakur appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Tupac often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Tupac is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Shakur's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Tupac Shakur has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Shakur is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Tupac Shakur has a mature and rather heavy, solemn demeanor, and he tends to take himself and life too seriously. He possesses a great deal of self-control, self-discipline, and a very dominant conscience. He may be dogged by feelings of personal inadequacy and inhibition. Tupac Shakur seems authoritarian to others.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Tupac Shakur does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Tupac's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
