approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Rory's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Rory Culkin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Rory Culkin - 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 Rory Culkin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Rory a little better. This page describes the disguise Culkin 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, Rory Culkin 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. Rory has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Rory Culkin very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Culkin is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Rory Culkin will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Culkin'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. Rory Culkin 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 Culkin is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Rory 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 Rory Culkin - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Rory Culkin 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 Rory.
Others see Rory Culkin as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Culkin 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 Rory Culkin usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Rory Culkin comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Culkin may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Rory is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Rory Culkin's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
Rory Culkin is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Rory Culkin tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Rory Culkin often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
Rory Culkin seems to float between the world of illusion and reality and prefers to live in the former. Somewhat insecure and uncertain, he may try to avoid responsibility. His ideas tend to be a bit strange and Rory Culkin should guard against pursuing the wrong objectives.
