approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Aaron's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Aaron Copland comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Aaron Copland - 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 Aaron Copland" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Aaron a little better. This page describes the disguise Copland wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Aaron Copland always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Copland will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Aaron Copland has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Aaron Copland also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Copland's environment is very important to Copland.
Copland steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Aaron Copland tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Aaron rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Aaron Copland as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Copland has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Aaron may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Aaron Copland seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Aaron tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
To others, Aaron Copland appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Aaron that inspired people to rely on him. Copland keeps his cool in most situations.
Aaron Copland has a strong desire to make an extraordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Aaron has the ability to fascinate and sweep others along, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
Aaron Copland tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Copland comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
