approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Vin's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vin Diesel comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Vin Diesel - 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 Vin Diesel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Vin a little better. This page describes the disguise Diesel 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 Diesel's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Vin Diesel wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Vin Diesel wants, Vin Diesel usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Vin 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. Vin Diesel 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. Vin Diesel usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Diesel approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Vin Diesel 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 Diesel. When Vin Diesel 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, Vin Diesel 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 Vin Diesel as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Vin Diesel also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Vin Diesel has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Vin will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Diesel can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Vin's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Vin Diesel also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Diesel needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
Vin Diesel has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Vin coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Vin Diesel is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Diesel seems to need others' approval first.
