approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Steve's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Steve Cochran comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Steve Cochran - 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 Steve Cochran" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Steve a little better. This page describes the disguise Cochran wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Steve Cochran is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Steve tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing his will upon them is often Cochran's way of dealing with problems.
Steve Cochran may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. He needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Cochran's emotional balance and well-being.
Steve Cochran is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Steve Cochran probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Cochran's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Cochran, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because he is very giving and forgiving, people sense Cochran's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Cochran will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Steve Cochran overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Cochran's strong points.
Though he may be as intelligent as anyone else, he does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Steve through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Cochran's more rational friends. Steve Cochran certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Steve Cochran has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. He is not as structured and rigid in his attitudes as many people are, which enables Steve Cochran to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on his part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
The effect of his childhood experiences, and the beliefs and attitudes Steve learned while young, are clearly apparent in his demeanor. All is well on the surface, but when trouble arises, Steve Cochran seems childish and needy. When he is in calmer waters, he appears to have a vulnerable, trusting nature that brings out the mothering instinct in others.
He may come across as a bit scattered, nervous or restless, as if unable to sit still. Steve Cochran seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Steve tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind soothing.
Steve has an appealing physical appearance, which - along with his winning ways - is likely to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Steve Cochran is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Cochran must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also come across as vain or too needy for approval.
A very self-confident personality and the ability to gain the respect of other people will almost assure Steve Cochran of a position of leadership. He is likely to be successful and his efforts will be recognized by others.
