approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Christian's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Christian Slater comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christian Slater - 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 Christian Slater" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Christian a little better. This page describes the disguise Slater 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 Slater's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Christian Slater wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Christian Slater wants, Christian Slater usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Christian 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. Christian Slater 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. Christian Slater usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Slater approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Christian Slater 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 Slater. When Christian Slater 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, Christian Slater 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 Christian Slater as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Christian Slater also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Daring and a bit reckless, Christian Slater is not afraid to face danger. Christian wants to be the biggest, the best, the strongest and the most powerful! Christian Slater has a need to have his influence noted in many directions and a desire to rule over those in his environment.
