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 Turing comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alan Turing - 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 Turing" 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 Turing wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Alan Turing is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Alan Turing has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Turing can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Alan Turing enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Alan never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Alan Turing has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Turing may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Alan Turing responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Alan does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Turing will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Turing's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Alan Turing becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Alan Turing tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Alan Turing appears to have a very honorable and generous attitude toward others, as if he has their best interests at heart. Because others view Turing as a tolerant, understanding, and even wise person, they may also turn to him for counsel.
Alan Turing appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Turing infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Alan Turing does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Alan Turing tends to be somewhat inhibited and may feel uncomfortable when he is with other people. Alan should try to avoid unpleasant, untruthful or deceptive individuals in order to prevent misunderstandings or disappointments.
