approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Chris' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Chris Martin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Chris Martin - 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 Martin" 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 Martin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Chris Martin 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. Martin tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Martin.
Martin 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 Martin 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 Martin 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 Martin 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 Martin 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.
Chris Martin radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Martin when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Chris Martin appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Martin infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Chris Martin does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Chris Martin has a dynamic personality and great ability to improvise, but he is likely to surprise, perplex or confuse people in his relationships constantly. His somewhat eccentric, impulsive and hasty actions could lead to accidents if he is not careful.
Chris Martin tends to get excited easily and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Martin seems to come across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
