The following is a description of Chris' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Chris Hillman comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chris Hillman - 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 Chris Hillman" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Chris a little better. This page describes the disguise Hillman wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Chris Hillman is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Hillman sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Chris' whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Chris Hillman himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Chris Hillman is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Chris Hillman is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Hillman probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Hillman's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Chris Hillman as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Chris does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Chris Hillman is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Chris Hillman is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Chris Hillman needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Hillman's work or outside social activities.
Chris Hillman comes across to others as intelligent, alert, articulate, knowledgeable, and communicative. He is quite curious and interested in the people and events around him, and cannot resist commenting about them.
Hillman also needs to be busy and active, and he moves quickly. Chris Hillman also appears to be restless. Keeping his mind or hands occupied helps with that.
Chris Hillman 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. Chris coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Chris Hillman is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Hillman seems to need others' approval first.
He is somewhat erratic and constantly looking for something new. Chris Hillman changes his opinions frequently and others never know what he will do next. Because Hillman is easily excitable and unpredictable, others may find it taxing to spend time with him.
