Alain Jean Assailly
approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alain's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Alain Assailly comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alain Assailly - 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 Alain Assailly" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alain a little better. This page describes the disguise Assailly wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Alain Assailly has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Assailly as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Alain does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Alain Assailly is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Assailly can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Assailly has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Alain Assailly appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Alain often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Alain is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Assailly's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Alain Assailly has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Assailly is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Alain Assailly appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Assailly infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Alain Assailly does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
The initial impression Assailly makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Alain thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Alain Assailly may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute them rather than clarify them. For instance, he may have a very definite, unambiguous opinion, but state it in such a gentle, tactful manner that it seems that he does not believe it as vigorously as he does. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Alain Assailly tends to become scattered and nervous when he is out of balance. He needs clarity and order in his environment to be at his finest.
Alain Assailly has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Assailly can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Assailly. Alain probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
Alain Assailly tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to him. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
