approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bo's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bo Bice comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bo Bice - 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 Bo Bice" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bo a little better. This page describes the disguise Bice wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Cautious, prudent, and rather self-contained, he is a person who approaches life realistically and who is not inclined to take foolish chances or get carried away by the overly optimistic or idealistic schemes of starry-eyed dreamers. In fact, Bo Bice frequently has a jaundiced view of such things. He is rather worldly-wise at a fairly young age, even somewhat of a cynic. Often the world does not seem like a safe, friendly place to Bice, and he tends to approach life in a guarded, conservative manner. He is generally calculated and careful, and is rarely spontaneous, fluid, open, and childlike.
He is pragmatic, shrewd, and an excellent strategist, carefully planning his moves for maximum effectiveness and advantage. He is willing to work long and persistently for what he wants and he often does things the hard way. Bo does not expect others to take care of him and sometimes refuses or simply does not seek any outside help. He is often very ambitious, but quietly so. There is nothing flamboyant or flashy about his approach. He is very responsible, conscientious, and concerned with his duties to others and how he comes across socially - his "rank" so to speak.
To others Bo Bice seems mature, serious, quiet, reflective, and emotionally detached. Bo dislikes sloppy sentimentality and will not openly display his feelings, especially the more tender ones. Bice likes to always appear poised and in control; and he hates to show any weakness, vulnerability, or chinks in his armor.
Bo Bice respects tradition and the time-honored way of doing things, and he feels that there is much to be gained from studying history and also by learning from older, more experienced people. A wise mentor or father is often Bice's guide in life, and he in turn develops a great deal of hard-earned wisdom, which he likes to impart to younger people.
Bo Bice has a stern, authoritarian, no-nonsense aspect to his personality. He expects much from himself and may not give himself enough leeway to experiment and make mistakes.
He also tends to be rather close-fisted, to save and conserve his money and resources rather than spending or enjoying them. Bo Bice spends money on things of quality and of lasting value, things which are good investments, but not frivolous, temporary pleasures. There is a bit of the ascetic in him. Bo exercises great self-discipline and self-control and he can "do without" very well. His tastes are generally understated and simple.
Though he may have other, more colorful and imaginative sides, the face Bice shows the world is modest and rather conservative.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Bo Bice seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Bo tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
Bo has an appealing physical appearance and this, along with his winning ways, is apt to make him a favorite in his immediate environment. Bo Bice is the "easy" one, and he knows how to please others. However, Bice must not take his personal charm for granted, because he may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Bo Bice has a radiant, winning personality and others see him as a person used to achieving success. Broadminded, Bice is willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. He is helpful and tolerant as long as his moral and ethical standards are respected.
Bo Bice has a strong desire to constantly be in the limelight and he considers second place already as failure. Very self-confident, Bice has the ability to mold his surrounding to his own needs and is likely to furnish his home according to his taste.
