approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Chris' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Chris Klein comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chris Klein - 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 Klein" 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 Klein wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Chris Klein appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Chris has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. Klein tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Klein.
Klein approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Chris Klein is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Chris' thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Chris and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Chris Klein empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Chris Klein is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Chris Klein communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Chris never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Chris Klein which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Chris he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Klein sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times though, Chris Klein may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Chris should avoid looking always on the dark side.
He is direct, honest, and to the point - some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who Chris Klein is or what he wants - he is pretty much up front. Chris radiates a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when he is at his best. He seems to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
The way Chris Klein comes across to others, particularly on first impression, tends to conceal certain important aspects of his. Specifically, what gives Chris pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent from Klein's outward demeanor. Chris Klein seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
Chris Klein has a hypnotizing effect on people in his surroundings and others see him as someone with extraordinary capabilities. Chris has a strong desire to mentally dominate his relationships, and with his ability to out-talk anyone, he can sway them to his opinions.
