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 Eckhart comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Aaron Eckhart - 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 Eckhart" 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 Eckhart wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Aaron Eckhart appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Aaron has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Eckhart tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Eckhart.
Eckhart approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Aaron Eckhart is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Aaron's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Aaron and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Aaron Eckhart empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Aaron Eckhart is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Aaron Eckhart communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Aaron never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Aaron Eckhart is quite excitable and very impatient and ready for a fight in a flash. Because of his impulsive and rash behavior, Eckhart also tends to be accident-prone. Everything Aaron Eckhart does has to be done in a hurry and he expects the same of people in his surroundings.
Eckhart strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Aaron Eckhart spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
