approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Sean's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Sean Astin comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Sean Astin - 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 Sean Astin" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Sean a little better. This page describes the disguise Astin wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Sean Astin 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. Sean Astin has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Astin 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. Sean Astin 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, Sean never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Sean Astin has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Astin may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Sean Astin responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Sean 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, Astin 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 Astin's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Sean Astin 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. Sean Astin 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 may be perceived as someone who provokes conflict because Sean Astin likes to get everything out into the open and generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be marked by a great deal of competition, anger or friction as a result. Or, Astin may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into joint efforts and shared endeavor is Astin's challenge.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Sean Astin which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Sean is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. Astin sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Sean Astin may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Sean should avoid always looking on the dark side.
The way Sean Astin comes across to others, particularly at first impression, tends to conceal certain important facets of his character. Specifically, what gives Sean pleasure, how he likes to give and receive affection, and what he seeks in friendship or love relationships are not at all apparent based on Astin's outward demeanor. Sean Astin seems to send mixed signals, and this can create a bit of confusion for the people who are interested in getting close to him or knowing him on more than a superficial level.
He is easily excitable and could find it difficult to sit still. Astin always has something going on and is not afraid to take chances. Sean Astin takes the initiative and has the ability to stimulate and sweep others along.
Sean Astin tends to get easily excited and may act a bit restless in the presence of other people. Always in motion, Astin comes across like a whirlwind and has a constant need for different and new experiences.
