approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Anthony's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Anthony Kiedis comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anthony Kiedis - 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 Anthony Kiedis" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Anthony a little better. This page describes the disguise Kiedis 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, Anthony Kiedis 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. Anthony has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Anthony Kiedis very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Kiedis is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Anthony Kiedis will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Kiedis' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Anthony Kiedis 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 Kiedis is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Anthony 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 Anthony Kiedis - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Anthony Kiedis 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 Anthony.
Others see Anthony Kiedis as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Kiedis 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 Anthony Kiedis usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He is assertive and bold. Anthony Kiedis is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Anthony generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Anthony Kiedis' boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Anthony Kiedis has a strong desire to make an extra-ordinary or unusual impression on his environment. Anthony has the ability to fascinate and sweep along others, but he can also be quite inconsiderate and ruthless.
Anthony Kiedis has a big heart, is generous with his affections, and has a strong desire to take care of everyone around him. It is easy for Kiedis to establish personal contacts and relationships because of his ability to fully understand others.
Other people may consider his environment a bit strange and Kiedis likes to surround himself with a certain air of mystery. Anthony Kiedis tends to be very secretive and is likely to exert his power from behind the scenes.
