approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Al's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Al Capone comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Al Capone - 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 Al Capone" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Al a little better. This page describes the disguise Capone wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Al Capone is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Al tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Capone's way of dealing with problems.
Al Capone may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Capone's emotional balance and well-being.
Al Capone is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Al Capone probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Capone's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Capone, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Capone's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Capone will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Al Capone overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Capone's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Al through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Capone's more rational friends. Al Capone certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Al Capone has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Al Capone to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
Al Capone appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Al Capone may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Al Capone comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Capone may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Al is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Al Capone's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Al Capone which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Al is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Capone sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Al Capone may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Al should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Al Capone has a strong desire to build an image that captivates everyone around him, and with his attractive and fascinating personality, he has the ability to influence many people. Al is likely to have some unusual love affairs.
He is very sensitive to his surroundings and inclined to be easily influenced by others. Al Capone tends to avoid confrontations, discussions or arguments for fear that he cannot stand up to them.
