His initial wariness and caution (as described on the previous page) is balanced by his innate enthusiasm and optimism. Even though he is fiercely and emotionally intense, Beau Bridges can also adopt a broader perspective of himself and his predicaments and laugh at himself in the process.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Beau Bridges, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Beau Bridges probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career.

However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Bridges expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Beau's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Beau Bridges enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Bridges.
