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 Walken comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Christopher Walken - 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 Walken" 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 Walken wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Christopher Walken 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. Walken tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Walken.
Walken 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 Walken 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 Walken 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 Walken 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 Walken 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 Walken radiates a sense of confidence, well-being, and optimism, which inspires trust and good feelings in others. He likes himself and it shows. He expects success in life and he generally achieves it. However, Walken also tends to exaggerate or to overestimate himself, and he can be sloppy and careless when it comes to details.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Christopher Walken has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Christopher Walken often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Christopher Walken 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. Christopher coaxes rather than coerces. However, if he does not get what he wants, Christopher Walken is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing it for himself. Walken seems to need others' approval first.
In significant ways, Walken's emotional nature and personal needs are at odds with the way he presents himself. As a result of this inconsistency, Christopher Walken may be uncomfortable showing his instinctive responses and true feelings. He may put them aside and may even be ashamed of them.
When Christopher Walken is in an emotionally charged situation, those who do not know him well may be quite surprised at his reactions or behavior. The real challenge, though, is to completely accept himself, so that he does not act as if his emotional needs and impulses did not count for very much.
Walken strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Christopher Walken spontaneously connects with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
