approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Kyle's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Kyle MacLachlan comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Kyle MacLachlan - 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 Kyle MacLachlan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Kyle a little better. This page describes the disguise MacLachlan wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Kyle MacLachlan likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. MacLachlan must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Kyle does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Kyle MacLachlan also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. MacLachlan will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Kyle dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
MacLachlan admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Kyle MacLachlan befriends someone, MacLachlan is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Kyle expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Kyle MacLachlan often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Kyle MacLachlan has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Kyle always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Kyle MacLachlan also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Kyle more than anything else. Kyle MacLachlan feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Kyle MacLachlan is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Kyle MacLachlan tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
He is assertive and bold. Kyle MacLachlan is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Kyle generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Kyle MacLachlan's boldness is his calling card, and most people feels that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
The image that Kyle MacLachlan projects to the world and the person he really is inside, are considerably different. So much so that at times Kyle may feel that people do not see or know the real him. They respond to the face they see, and the initial impression MacLachlan makes may actually be misleading. Within him, also, there is much complexity and tension, and Kyle MacLachlan often feels that he needs to change himself in significant ways or that he continually holds back essential aspects of his.
MacLachlan may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Kyle quite a bit.
