approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bo's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Bo Derek comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bo Derek - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her 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 Derek" 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 Derek wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Bo Derek meets life head on and throws herself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. She is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all her dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Bo projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. She often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Derek is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. She likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Bo Derek may feel that she does not fit into groups very well and that she does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. She likes to be either a leader or a loner.
Derek is a doer and thrives on freedom, challenge, and activity. She tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in her outlook, which enables Bo to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Bo Derek feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that she will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Derek's forte. However, she never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Bo Derek it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
She is scornful of what she sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Bo Derek is not a follower. Others see Bo as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Derek presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see her vulnerable or insecure side.
Her emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Bo Derek could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, she is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in her. At times Derek may wish she was not so easy to read.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Bo's manner and appearance regardless of her chronological age. Bo Derek also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Derek needs mental stimulation from her environment, or she will rapidly get bored.
To others, Bo Derek appears capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when she was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Bo that inspired people to rely on her. Derek keeps her cool in most situations.
Bo Derek appears to be liberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beaten track arouses her interest. Derek infuses her environment with enthusiasm, new life and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, Bo Derek does enjoy startling or waking people up a bit.
