approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Wes' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Wes Bentley comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Wes Bentley - 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 Wes Bentley" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Wes a little better. This page describes the disguise Bentley 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 Bentley's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Wes Bentley wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Wes Bentley wants, Wes Bentley usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Wes 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. Wes Bentley 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. Wes Bentley usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Bentley approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Wes Bentley 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 Bentley. When Wes Bentley 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, Wes Bentley 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 Wes Bentley as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Wes Bentley also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He may find it difficult to get ahead because Wes lacks the vitality to do so. Wes Bentley tends to wait for better conditions and has the desire to accomplish a lot without straining himself too much. Quite often, though, his plans just seem to hang in the air.
