approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Billy's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Billy Crystal comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Billy Crystal - 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 Billy Crystal" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Billy a little better. This page describes the disguise Crystal wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Billy Crystal 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 Crystal 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. Billy does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Billy Crystal 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. Crystal 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 Crystal 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. Billy Crystal 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, Billy 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. Billy 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 Crystal'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.
Billy Crystal 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. Crystal 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.
He is impressionable, sympathetic, and responsive to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him. Billy Crystal harmonizes, blends, and adapts himself to other people. Often he is rather quiet, just listening and feeling. He is subtle and knows when to keep silent and wait. Billy acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
Billy Crystal has a friendly, affectionate attitude towards others and a great deal of personal charm. His attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about Billy, and is probably something he cares a great deal about. Crystal gets along well with people and knows how to please them. Billy Crystal has a well honed sense of style and beauty.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Billy Crystal a position of leadership. He is likely to be successful and his efforts will be recognized by others.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Billy Crystal often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
