approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Ethan's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Ethan Cohen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Ethan Cohen - 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 Ethan Cohen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Ethan a little better. This page describes the disguise Cohen 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 Cohen's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Ethan Cohen wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Ethan Cohen wants, Ethan Cohen usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Ethan 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. Ethan Cohen 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. Ethan Cohen usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Cohen approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Ethan Cohen 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 Cohen. When Ethan Cohen 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, Ethan Cohen 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 Ethan Cohen as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Ethan Cohen also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Ethan Cohen could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Cohen may wish he were not so easy to read.
He is able to control his feelings and conduct himself in a very proper manner. Because of his inner shyness, Ethan Cohen tends to separate himself from others and gives the impression that he does not want to be talked to.
Ethan Cohen tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
