approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Christopher's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Christopher Boyce comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christopher Boyce - 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 Christopher Boyce" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Christopher a little better. This page describes the disguise Boyce wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Christopher Boyce 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. Christopher 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. Boyce tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Boyce.
Boyce 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, Christopher Boyce 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 Christopher's 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 Christopher 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. Christopher Boyce empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Christopher Boyce 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. Christopher Boyce communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Christopher never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Christopher Boyce identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original, unpredictable, and spontaneous, and insists on doing whatever he wishes regardless of tradition, convention, or other people's wishes. Others see Christopher Boyce as "different" yet interesting and exciting.
Christopher Boyce appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Christopher Boyce may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Christopher's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Christopher Boyce also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Boyce needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
Boyce projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Christopher Boyce generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Christopher Boyce emanates.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Christopher Boyce often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
