approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Vincent's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Vincent Price comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Vincent Price - 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 Vincent Price" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Vincent a little better. This page describes the disguise Price 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 In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Vincent Price is often receding and withdrawn for he is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Vincent 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 Price's way of dealing with problems.
Vincent Price 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 Price's emotional balance and well-being.
Vincent Price is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Vincent Price probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Price's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Price, 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 Price's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward him when in need. Often Price will continue to give to people even when he realizes they are taking advantage of him or becoming overly dependent upon him. Vincent Price overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for his own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Price'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 Vincent through logical arguments is often futile. His feelings, intuition, and heart, not his head, lead him, which may infuriate or bewilder Price's more rational friends. Vincent Price certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Vincent Price 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 Vincent Price 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.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Vincent Price has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Vincent Price often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Vincent Price seems tolerant, broad-minded, and well-educated or as if he has traveled widely. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. Price is apt to have a significant impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it - a positive, encouraging one.
His attitude towards life is governed by his feelings and Vincent Price tends to seek cordial understanding with others. Vincent has the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting his judgment, they are likely to come to Price for advice.
He is a born leader and wants to be in power and control of his environment. Far-sighted and prudent, Vincent Price has the ability to organize projects, and personal advancement and public success is likely to be his.
