approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Joel's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Joel Coen comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Joel Coen - 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 Joel Coen" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Joel a little better. This page describes the disguise Coen wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Joel Coen is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Coen sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Joel's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Joel Coen himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Joel Coen is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Joel Coen is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Coen probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Coen's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Joel Coen as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Joel does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Joel Coen is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Joel Coen is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Joel Coen needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Coen's work or outside social activities.
Joel Coen 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 Joel Coen may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Joel Coen comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Coen may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Joel is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Joel Coen's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
