approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Vincent's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vincent Gallo comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Vincent Gallo - 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 Vincent Gallo" 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 Gallo wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Vincent Gallo 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. Gallo 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 Gallo 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. Gallo 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.
Gallo admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Vincent Gallo befriends someone, Gallo 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 - Vincent expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Vincent Gallo 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.
Vincent Gallo has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Vincent always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Vincent Gallo 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 Vincent more than anything else. Vincent Gallo feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Vincent Gallo appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he had their best interest at heart. Because others view Gallo as a tolerant, understanding and even wise person, they may also seek his counsel.
Vincent Gallo seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Vincent may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Vincent's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Vincent Gallo also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Gallo needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
In significant ways, Gallo's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Vincent Gallo may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Vincent Gallo is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Vincent Gallo tends to be somewhat insecure in his relationships with other people and he strives for safety and security in his life. Acquiring possessions and property is important to Vincent, and he has a strong desire to make a distinguished impression on others.
