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 Pacino comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Al Pacino - 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 Pacino" 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 Pacino wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Al Pacino 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. Pacino 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 Al does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Al Pacino 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. Pacino will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Al dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Pacino admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Al Pacino befriends someone, Pacino 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 - Al expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Al Pacino 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.
Al Pacino has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Al always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Al Pacino 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 Al more than anything else. Al Pacino feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Al Pacino has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Al Pacino often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Al Pacino appears 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, Pacino may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Al fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Al Pacino is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
He may find it difficult to get ahead because Al lacks the vitality to do so. Al Pacino 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.
Pacino strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Al Pacino spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
