approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Angus' basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Angus Young comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Angus Young - 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 Angus Young" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Angus a little better. This page describes the disguise Young 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, Angus Young 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. Angus has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Angus Young very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Young is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Angus Young will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Young'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. Angus Young 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 Young is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Angus 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 Angus Young - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Angus Young 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 Angus.
Others see Angus Young as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Young 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 Angus Young usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Angus Young seems gentle and receptive and often does not make a clear, strong impression on others. Angus Young has an elusive and subtle quality, and people may be nebulous about who he is. He is easily influenced by others and somewhat naive. Angus Young has a spiritual, mystical approach to life and he is very idealistic and sometimes impractical.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Angus Young could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Young may wish he was not so easy to read.
Angus Young has a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and he likes to do things in a big way. If he does this primarily to impress others, Angus will find that many people prefer to avoid him. Even without meaning to, Young can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
Angus Young seems quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes it seems that he is trying to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. Young tends to be restless, excitable, and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
Angus has penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. He may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in Angus' manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Angus often comes across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve his aims. And naturally if people perceive that he is trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to Angus Young and his objectives. Young might be more successful if he tones himself down a bit and shows some consideration, without completely sacrificing his own needs and wants.
