Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Robert Alda" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Robert a little better. This page describes the disguise Alda wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Robert Alda is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Robert Alda has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Alda can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Robert Alda enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Robert never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Robert Alda has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Alda may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Robert Alda responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Robert does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Alda will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Alda's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Robert Alda becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Robert Alda tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
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. Robert Alda tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Robert does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Robert Alda could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Alda may wish he was not so easy to read.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Robert Alda seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Robert tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
