Open and generous, Alice Cooper enjoys a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and he thrives on sociability and fellowship. He is adventurous, playful, freedom loving, and always ready for a good time. Cooper rarely allows obstacles or difficulties to keep him down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, Alice always expects a better, brighter future. In fact, he is uncomfortable with his own or other people's problems and emotional pain. Alice Cooper often tries to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but he unwittingly avoids or ignores the emotions involved.
Friendship means a great deal to Cooper, perhaps even more than love relationships or romance. For Alice Cooper to be happy, his mate must be his best friend and encourage Alice's aspirations and ideals. Alice Cooper also needs a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
Alice Cooper often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because he has always done it a certain way and he is uncomfortable changing it. Even when Cooper thinks he is being rational, his prejudices, intuitions, and feelings influence his thoughts a great deal. Alice is comfortable talking about feelings and personal subjects, and sharing confidences, which enables others to express their own inner feelings with him as well. Alice Cooper has good psychological insight into others.
Alice has conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate his personal life and relationships. He may feel that he cannot depend on his love partner to take care of him or perhaps Cooper cannot decide what he really wants in love relationships: a parent or a lover. If his needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can become a problem.
He is tolerant and forgiving and always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. Alice Cooper expects, and draws out, the best from people and he enjoys making others comfortable and happy. Because of his emotional generosity, his life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
There is another side to Alice Cooper as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Alice Cooper has an inner poise and balance that enables him to act in a cool, efficient manner during emotional trauma and stress. He maintains his perspective and objectivity about highly charged emotional issues - sometimes to the chagrin of others who might wish that Cooper would react more intensely. Alice is quietly supportive and faithful to his friends and loved ones.
In addition to Alice's rather introverted, serious or self-contained side, he has a wild streak and urge for emotional freedom that breaks through erratically. Alice Cooper craves both stability and excitement, and the conflict between these two impulses can make Cooper rather tense and irritable. However, they can also balance each other out. His freer and unpredictable side will now be described.
His childhood and early home life was in many ways unsettling, and the nurturing Cooper received was erratic and unreliable at best. Alice Cooper has had to move a lot, or Cooper's family may have been blatantly different from other people so that Alice was often deemed an outsider or a "weirdo". As an adult, Alice Cooper may long for "normalcy" while at the same time he balks at any routine, structure, formality or restrictions.
Alice Cooper often becomes nervous or shaky when emotionally stressed. Developing a regular rhythm and a steady, consistent (if not traditional) way of life would be beneficial to Cooper, both emotionally and physically.
Alice Cooper has a great interest in everything and everyone around him and is constantly looking for people with whom he can establish deep inner relationships. His judgments are based on his personal feelings and he has a strong need to be with others.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, Alice Cooper gives very selflessly and devotedly to those he loves and often allows others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, Alice Cooper may become romantically involved with a person because he or she expresses a need for love, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
He is drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls - poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone Alice feels he can have a deep spiritual relationship with. Alice Cooper idealizes love and has a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love relationships can be.
When he cares about someone, Alice Cooper likes to serve them by doing small thoughtful favors, helping them, or doing something tangible to show his affection.
Alice Cooper has also considerable artistic or creative skill. In fact, Alice is suited for a profession involving beauty or pleasure or making people happy in some way.
Alice Cooper shares whatever he has freely and his friends know they can always count on Alice's generosity and support - both emotional and material. His good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way toward maintaining harmony in his relationships. Alice Cooper also has a lazy streak and sometimes avoids confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. Alice likes to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. He cannot tolerate being overly restricted by his love partner, and encourages his partner's freedom as well.
Alice's pleasure-loving nature and his emotional and material generosity discussed above are counterbalanced by a certain caution or restraint in expressing his affection, and by a fear of heartache. At times Alice Cooper is likely to be the jovial, friendly, rather extravagant person mentioned previously, but at other times he is far more contained as described here. Because he is upbeat and fun-loving, people probably do not suspect how sensitive Cooper is to being left out or unappreciated.
Alice Cooper tends to deprive himself of pleasure, friendship, and love, either because he feels he does not deserve it or he thinks it is wrong to enjoy life too much. Cooper may have been indoctrinated with a duty-and-work-before-all-else orientation early on. He may also think of himself as unattractive or unlovable, and thus close his heart to opportunities to share love and companionship, never quite believing that others actually like him. Alice Cooper is apt to prefer solitude to being in uncomfortable relationships or social situations, and his shyness may be intense - especially when young. Learning to truly love and accept himself - including whatever flaws or imperfections Alice believes he has - is so important for him. This process of self-appreciation and self-love will reap rewards, especially in later life.
When it comes to love relationships, Cooper is likely to feel pulled in several directions at once. In addition to his desire for depth and security in his relationships, Alice Cooper has an impulsive side and a need for a lot of variety and excitement, as discussed in the following paragraphs. These urges do not have to conflict, but they certainly can, especially if Alice acts on his spontaneous impulses without much consideration for their long-term effects on his personal life.
His love feelings are easily aroused and his romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but they often end abruptly, and Cooper may be in and out of love relationships - especially in his younger years. Alice Cooper craves emotional excitement and needs to feel spontaneous and free, so he may avoid making firm personal commitments. Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to Cooper, and he is attracted to unique, creative or unstable people.
Alice Cooper tends to be a bit self-centered and willful in love relationships, but also magnetic. His desire is always very strong and Cooper resents authority and likes to be different. Alice Cooper may also have artistic ambitions and always has many new ideas at his disposal.
Alice Cooper has a propensity for clandestine and secret love affairs and tends to keep his relationships hidden. Alice could find himself in some peculiar relationships where he or his partner could be reluctant to make an external commitment.
Alice Cooper has a need for calm and peaceful surrounding, but his somewhat passionate nature could bring on arguments and fights about love matters. Alice Cooper loves his work and may connect his profession with a hobby in some way.
His attraction to someone may come very suddenly and Alice Cooper loves the excitement of new love relationships. But his attachments may be less than conventional, Cooper changes them quickly, and he is likely to have many affairs. He may not be very selective in his contacts.
