approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Alice's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Alice Cooper comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Alice Cooper - 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 Alice Cooper" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Alice a little better. This page describes the disguise Cooper wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Alice Cooper will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Alice has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Alice Cooper very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Cooper is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Alice Cooper will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Cooper's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Alice Cooper appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Cooper is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Alice possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Alice Cooper - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Alice Cooper does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Alice.
Others see Alice Cooper as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Cooper shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Alice Cooper usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Alice Cooper seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Alice Cooper has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Alice Cooper has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
Alice Cooper radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Cooper when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Alice 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 Alice's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Alice Cooper loves children and young people and is likely to provide an intellectually stimulating environment for them. Cooper is inclined to lead an active social life and establishing relationships with others comes easy for him.
