The following is a description of Vincent's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vincent Cassel comes across, the face he shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Vincent Cassel" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Vincent a little better. This page describes the disguise Cassel wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Vincent Cassel 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. Cassel 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 Vincent does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Vincent Cassel 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. Cassel will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Vincent dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Cassel admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Vincent Cassel befriends someone, Cassel is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy.
