approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alec's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Alec Baldwin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alec Baldwin - 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 Alec Baldwin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alec a little better. This page describes the disguise Baldwin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Alec Baldwin appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Alec has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Baldwin tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Baldwin.
Baldwin approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Alec Baldwin is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Alec's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Alec and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Alec Baldwin empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Alec Baldwin is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Alec Baldwin communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit. Alec never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Alec Baldwin seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Alec tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Alec Baldwin has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Alec will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Baldwin can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Alec Baldwin is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Alec Baldwin tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
The way Alec Baldwin comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Alec pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Baldwin's outward demeanor. Alec Baldwin seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
Alec has good organizing ability and he knows how to arrange everything skillfully. Happy in team-work and adept in negotiating, he can lead successful business meetings. Alec Baldwin can easily obtain all the information he needs in order to make the best deal.
Alec Baldwin loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Baldwin is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
