approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Charlie's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Charlie Chaplin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Charlie Chaplin - 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 Charlie Chaplin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Charlie a little better. This page describes the disguise Chaplin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Chaplin's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Charlie Chaplin wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Charlie Chaplin wants, Charlie Chaplin usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Charlie wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Charlie Chaplin functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Charlie Chaplin usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Chaplin approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Charlie Chaplin also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Chaplin. When Charlie Chaplin commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Charlie Chaplin is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Charlie Chaplin as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Charlie Chaplin also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He is impressionable, sympathetic, and responsive to the emotional tone and atmosphere around him. Charlie Chaplin 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. Charlie acts instinctively, sensing and intuiting when the time is right for action.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Charlie Chaplin likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Chaplin may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Chaplin's challenge.
Charlie Chaplin appears contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Chaplin may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Charlie fears making mistakes in social situations, and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Charlie Chaplin is likely to grow in confidence, because he will learn to depend more on his own evaluation of himself.
Chaplin projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Charlie Chaplin generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Charlie somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Charlie Chaplin emanates.
Charlie Chaplin has a loving and kind-hearted personality and he loves other people. Chaplin can readily express his love and affection and others show their affection for Chaplin. Charlie probably had a safe and secure childhood and was allowed to make friendships early in life.
He is very receptive to the influence of his environment, giving other people a chance to exploit or use him. Charlie Chaplin has the ability to tune into the events around him, but he also should be careful not to overreact to the intentions of others.
