approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bing's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bing Crosby comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bing Crosby - 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 Bing Crosby" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bing a little better. This page describes the disguise Crosby 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, Bing Crosby 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. Bing has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Bing Crosby very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Crosby is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Bing Crosby will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Crosby'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. Bing Crosby 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 Crosby is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Bing 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 Bing Crosby - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Bing Crosby 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 Bing.
Others see Bing Crosby as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Crosby 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 Bing Crosby usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
Bing Crosby is extremely sensitive to all the impressions and energies around him and at times can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Bing Crosby tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of appearing to become the people or person he is with the most.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Bing's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Moreover, Bing Crosby also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Crosby needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
To others, Bing Crosby appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Bing that inspired people to rely on him. Crosby keeps his cool in most situations.
His emotional instincts, feelings and intuition play a big part in the decisions Bing Crosby makes and how he interacts with the world, and generally his feelings are quite accurate and helpful to him. Also, establishing emotional rapport with the people he meets day-to-day is rather easy for Crosby. Bing Crosby appears somewhat sympathetic and concerned, so that others are drawn to him, especially when they need guidance or help.
Crosby is likely to go his own way in life and he has a tendency to stay secluded from others. Bing Crosby is always preoccupied with his own thoughts and ideas and gives other people the impression that he does not want to be bothered with their problems.
Bing Crosby believes in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivates an active social life. His relationships tend to be very harmonious and his participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.
