approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Barry's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Barry Bonds comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Barry Bonds - 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 Barry Bonds" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Barry a little better. This page describes the disguise Bonds wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Barry loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Barry Bonds has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Barry Bonds tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Barry Bonds loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Barry Bonds has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom loving and independent, Barry Bonds cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Barry and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Barry Bonds gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. Bonds likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Barry Bonds as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
His desire to love and to be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Barry Bonds is known for his personal charm and affectionate nature. He may also seem overly dependent on others' approval and appreciation of him.
He may be seen as someone who provokes conflict because Barry Bonds likes to get everything out in the open and he generally does not avoid disagreeable issues. His relationships with others may be characterized by a great deal of competition, anger, or friction as a result. Or, Bonds may seem to run into more than his share of inconsiderate, pushy people. Learning to harness his energies into cooperative efforts and shared work is Bonds' challenge.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Barry's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Barry Bonds also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Bonds needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
At times his desire to impress other people, to be important, or to be popular may make Bonds does things that go against his better judgment. Even Barry's sincere attempts to be generous or helpful may be misinterpreted, seen as pompousness or interference. Barry Bonds needs to be aware of his tendency to overdo - to go all out - even when it is not appropriate.
He may feel that personal relationships are interfering with the pursuit of his goals and chooses to lead a life on his own. But at the same time Barry Bonds often may feel lonely and alienated by others.
