approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Al Bano's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Albano Carrisi comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Albano Carrisi - 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 Albano Carrisi" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Al Bano a little better. This page describes the disguise Albano wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Albano's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Albano Carrisi wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Albano Carrisi wants, Albano Carrisi usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Al Bano wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Albano Carrisi functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Albano Carrisi usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Albano approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Albano Carrisi also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Albano. When Albano Carrisi commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Albano Carrisi is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Albano Carrisi as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Albano Carrisi also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Albano Carrisi which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Al Bano is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Albano 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, Albano Carrisi may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Al Bano should avoid always looking on the dark side.
Al Bano has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Albano Carrisi is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Albano must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
The initial impression Albano makes on people may be somewhat deceiving, in that the way Al Bano thinks and his true opinions are not always readily apparent. Albano Carrisi may try to clothe his ideas and thoughts in terms that tend to mute 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 as though he does not stand behind it as vigorously as he would like. This creates miscommunication or misunderstandings at times. On another level, Albano Carrisi 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.
He may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Albano Carrisi does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Al Bano's role to shake things up a bit and he may not be entirely comfortable with this himself.
