approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Stanley's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Stanley Kubrick comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Stanley Kubrick - 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 Stanley Kubrick" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Stanley a little better. This page describes the disguise Kubrick 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, Stanley Kubrick 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. Stanley has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Stanley Kubrick very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Kubrick is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Stanley Kubrick will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Kubrick'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. Stanley Kubrick 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 Kubrick is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Stanley 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 Stanley Kubrick - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Stanley Kubrick 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 Stanley.
Others see Stanley Kubrick as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Kubrick 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 Stanley Kubrick usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Stanley Kubrick seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Stanley tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Stanley Kubrick which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Stanley he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Kubrick 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 though, Stanley Kubrick may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Stanley should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Stanley Kubrick appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Stanley Kubrick seemed mature for his age.
