approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kurt's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kurt Cobain comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kurt Cobain - 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 Kurt Cobain" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kurt a little better. This page describes the disguise Cobain 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, Kurt Cobain always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Cobain will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Kurt Cobain 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. Kurt Cobain also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Cobain's environment is very important to Cobain.
Cobain 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. Kurt Cobain 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, Kurt rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Kurt Cobain as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Cobain 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. Kurt 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, unglamorous position in life.
Although he has a realistic and conservative outlook in many ways, Kurt Cobain nevertheless identifies with the progressive, innovative elements in society, and with being a rebel, reformer, nonconformist, or iconoclast. He enjoys being original and a free thinker. Cobain can be a very effective reformer, working within the system to make it better. Kurt Cobain often feels frustrated by inefficiency and poor moral conduct in institutions and organizations. Cobain's contributions are probably more significant and the ensuing improvements more important than Kurt Cobain gives himself credit for.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Kurt Cobain tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Kurt does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
He is highly verbal and communicative. Connecting with and talking to other people are key aspects of Kurt's personality. Kurt Cobain may seem to be a busybody to others sometimes. He may also depend too much on other people's advice or feedback before making up his own mind, and Cobain may thus appear to be indecisive.
Kurt Cobain has a sympathetic understanding of others and the ability to see through people. Very sensitive, his emotional state depends a lot on the influence of his immediate surroundings and relationships. For this reason others may see Kurt as a somewhat unstable person.
