approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Alan Ladd comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alan Ladd - 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 Alan Ladd" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alan a little better. This page describes the disguise Ladd wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Alan Ladd 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. Ladd 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 Alan does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Alan Ladd 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. Ladd will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Alan dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Ladd admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Alan Ladd befriends someone, Ladd 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 - Alan expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Alan Ladd 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.
Alan Ladd has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Alan always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Alan Ladd 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 Alan more than anything else. Alan Ladd feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Alan Ladd seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Ladd tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Others are attracted to Ladd because of his light-hearted, cheerful and optimistic personality. Very charming, Alan Ladd is likely to give frequent compliments. He is very affectionate toward others and has a need to be in active relationships with people.
