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 Tillman comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kevin Tillman - 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 Tillman" 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 Tillman wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Kevin Tillman has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Tillman as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Kevin does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Kevin Tillman is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Tillman can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Tillman has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Kevin Tillman appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Kevin often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Kevin is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Tillman's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Kevin Tillman has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Tillman is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
Tillman may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Kevin Tillman is always a bit off center.
Kevin Tillman also comes across as an independent sort, someone who does not wish to be controlled or dictated to.
There is a receptive, elusive quality to Kevin's personality. Tillman can be difficult to pin down, difficult to know, something of a mystery. At times Kevin Tillman may feel frustrated because he feels that he is not being perceived very clearly, that he does not make a powerful impression, that he is easily overlooked or discounted. If he does not wish to be "invisible", Tillman must make some effort to define and clarify - both for himself and for the rest of the world - who Kevin Tillman is. On the other hand, Kevin Tillman may purposely create illusions about himself with the intent to deceive - or entertain - others.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Kevin that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Kevin Tillman may be on the surface, he is also a force to be reckoned with. Kevin has causes, passions or desires that drive him and when one of these is aroused Tillman is quite zealous in his pursuit or defense of it.
