approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Stephen's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Stephen King comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Stephen King - 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 Stephen King" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Stephen a little better. This page describes the disguise King wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Stephen King appears gentle and soft, and he acts rather reserved with others until he knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Stephen has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for him. King tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to King.
King approaches life emotionally and subjectively and he is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, Stephen King is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
His emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Stephen's thoughts and opinions. He views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Stephen and his near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for him and his near and dear ones, it is no good.
He is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Stephen King empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he is easily moved by others' pain, and Stephen King is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
His moods fluctuate and change frequently and he is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Stephen King communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Stephen never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to him.
Stephen King can get by in life almost on his personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Stephen that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when King is around.
Stephen King 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. Stephen coaxes rather than coerces. However, if he does not get what he wants, Stephen King is likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining or pouting rather than stating directly what he needs, or doing it for himself. King seems to need others' approval first.
Stephen King has a kind and loving nature and he radiates friendliness and warmth wherever he goes. Because of his obliging and cordial manner, King is likely to have many harmonious relationships with others.
