approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Vernon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vernon Jordan comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Vernon Jordan - 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 Vernon Jordan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Vernon a little better. This page describes the disguise Jordan wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Vernon Jordan 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 Jordan 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. Vernon does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Vernon Jordan 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. Jordan 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 Jordan 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. Vernon Jordan 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, Vernon 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. Vernon 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 Jordan'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.
Vernon Jordan 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. Jordan 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.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Vernon Jordan seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Vernon tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Vernon has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Vernon's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Others may see Vernon as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Vernon Jordan could feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
