approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Phil's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Phil Spector comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Phil Spector - 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 Phil Spector" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Phil a little better. This page describes the disguise Spector wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Phil Spector will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Phil has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Phil Spector very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Spector is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Phil Spector will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Spector's politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Phil Spector appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Spector is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Phil possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Phil Spector - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Phil Spector does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Phil.
Others see Phil Spector as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Spector shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Phil Spector usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite distinct from the face the world generally sees, Phil Spector has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant impact on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Phil Spector often does not get the full recognition he yearns for.
Phil Spector 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. Phil coaxes rather than coerces. However, if he does not get what he wants, Phil Spector is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing it for himself. Spector seems to need others' approval first.
Phil has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes facets of life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Phil's manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
At times his desire to impress other people, or be important or popular may make Spector do things that go against his better judgment. Even Phil's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, or seen as pompousness or interference. Phil Spector needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
