approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kevin's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kevin Costner comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kevin Costner - 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 Kevin Costner" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kevin a little better. This page describes the disguise Costner wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Kevin Costner always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Costner will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Kevin Costner has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Kevin Costner also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Costner's environment is very important to Costner.
Costner steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Kevin Costner tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Kevin rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Kevin Costner as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Costner has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Kevin may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
Kevin Costner radiates a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It is hard to ignore Costner when he is present, and his personality may overshadow or dominate the scene.
Costner projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Kevin Costner generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Kevin somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Kevin Costner emanates.
Kevin Costner appears to be unusual, highly independent, and a free spirit. There is a touch of brilliance, of the creative genius, in his manner. He is also restless and easily distracted, tending to fly from one thing to another, which may give the impression that Costner is unreliable.
