approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Valentino's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Valentino Rossi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Valentino Rossi - 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 Valentino Rossi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Valentino a little better. This page describes the disguise Rossi wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Valentino Rossi likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Rossi must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Valentino does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Valentino Rossi also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Rossi will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Valentino dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Rossi admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Valentino Rossi befriends someone, Rossi is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Valentino expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Valentino Rossi often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Valentino Rossi has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Valentino always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Valentino Rossi also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Valentino more than anything else. Valentino Rossi feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Valentino Rossi comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Rossi tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Valentino has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Valentino Rossi is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Rossi must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness and nonjudgmental acceptance about Valentino Rossi which draws people in need to him. Because he has a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, Valentino is able to say or do just the right thing for them. Valentino Rossi needs to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
His pleasant and friendly disposition enables Valentino Rossi to embark on quick personal relationships with other people. He enjoys social functions and has a harmonious relationship to his environment.
