approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Albert's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Albert Ayler comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Albert Ayler - 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 Albert Ayler" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Albert a little better. This page describes the disguise Ayler wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Albert Ayler 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 Ayler 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. Albert does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Albert Ayler 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. Ayler 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 Ayler 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. Albert Ayler 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, Albert 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. Albert 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 Ayler'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.
Albert Ayler 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. Ayler 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.
Albert Ayler has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Albert coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Albert Ayler is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Ayler seems to need others' approval first.
Albert Ayler appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Albert Ayler seemed mature for his age.
Albert has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Albert's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
