approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tim's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tim Robbins comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tim Robbins - 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 Tim Robbins" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tim a little better. This page describes the disguise Robbins wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, he is a person who is content to stay in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. He is quite humble in his own assessment of himself; he seeks perfection, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, Tim Robbins always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often Robbins will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
Tim Robbins has an eye for detail and he gets upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. He is hard to please and his relationships with others may suffer because of this. Tim Robbins also has refined sensitivities and is very discriminating and particular in his choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in Robbins' environment is very important to Robbins.
Robbins steps into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, he is unlikely to dive into it. Tim Robbins tends to underestimate his own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits his spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of his. On the other hand, Tim rarely falls flat on his face and what he does, he does very well.
Others see Tim Robbins as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. Robbins has a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to him. His clear, cool, objective and non-emotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though he is really quite helpful and caring, he does not radiate much sympathy and as a result, others may not see the helpful side as readily. Tim may seem more businesslike and factual as well as more conservative than he really is at heart. He is the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
He is keenly observant, intelligent, and has a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but he is not especially ambitious and is often satisfied with a rather simple, unglamourous position in life.
He is extremely willful, but he often achieves his desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way. He may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or he may be attracted to similarly powerful, fascinating personalities. Tim Robbins tends to go to extremes in whatever he does, to be compulsive, and he is driven by a sense of mission or destiny. Tim does not take anything at face value and is always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Tim into trouble. Tim Robbins tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Tim Robbins needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
Robbins projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Tim Robbins generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and it may seem that he Tim somehow luckier than other people. Mostly this is due to the confidence that Tim Robbins emanates.
Tim Robbins tends to blend in with and take on the characteristics of the people in his surroundings, and may thus not make a powerful individual statement of his own. He may project an aura of glamour or "make-believe", and enjoy trying on different personalities at different times.
