approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ville's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ville Valo comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ville Valo - 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 Ville Valo" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ville a little better. This page describes the disguise Valo wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Valo's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Ville Valo wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Ville Valo wants, Ville Valo usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Ville wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Ville Valo functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Ville Valo usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Valo approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Ville Valo also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Valo. When Ville Valo commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Ville Valo is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Ville Valo as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Ville Valo also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Ville Valo appears confident and self-assured and he makes a clear, strong impression on others. He is very concerned with the impact he makes on others and with getting personal recognition, sometimes too much so. Ville Valo tends to dominate in relationships and to be oblivious to others' points of view if they differ very much from Valo's own.
He is forceful and energetic and goes for what he wants quite aggressively. He is a doer and an achiever and has a positive "I can" attitude. He may run over people and stir up opposition and conflict because Ville Valo tends to be very self-centered, or simply oblivious to the needs and intentions of others.
Ville Valo appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Valo as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
Ville Valo has a strong desire to build an image of his that captivates everyone around him, and with his attractive and fascinating personality, he has the ability to influence many people. Ville is likely to have some unusual love affairs.
He is very sensitive to his surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Ville Valo tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that he cannot stand up to them.
