approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Michael's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Michael Keaton comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Michael Keaton - 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 Michael Keaton" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Michael a little better. This page describes the disguise Keaton wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Keaton's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Michael Keaton wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Michael Keaton wants, Michael Keaton usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Michael wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Michael Keaton functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Michael Keaton usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Keaton approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Michael Keaton also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Keaton. When Michael Keaton commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Michael Keaton is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Michael Keaton as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Michael Keaton also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Michael into trouble. Michael Keaton tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Michael Keaton needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Michael Keaton appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses his interest. Keaton infuses his environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Michael Keaton does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
Michael Keaton can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Michael that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Keaton is around.
Michael Keaton has a sweet, appealing demeanor and seems instinctively to grasp the concept that "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar". His personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. Michael coax rather than coerce. However, if he does not get what he wants, Michael Keaton is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing for himself. Keaton seems to need others' approval first.
At times his desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Keaton does things that go against his better judgment. Even Michael's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Michael Keaton needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
Keaton strongly resents daily routine and is always ready and willing to challenge life. Responding quickly to people around him, Michael Keaton spontaneously connect with them and tends to become stimulated through them.
