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 Quinn comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Anthony Quinn - 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 Quinn" 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 Quinn wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Anthony Quinn 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 Quinn 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. Anthony does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Anthony Quinn 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. Quinn 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 Quinn 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. Anthony Quinn 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, Anthony 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. Anthony 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 Quinn'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.
Anthony Quinn 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. Quinn 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.
Anthony Quinn 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. Anthony coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Anthony Quinn is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Quinn seems to need others' approval first.
Anthony Quinn tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
Anthony has strong leadership qualities and finds it natural to take charge of his family environment. He throws himself wholeheartedly into all his affairs, does not like others to make demands on him, but Anthony Quinn will willingly give of his in most situations.
Anthony Quinn seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
