approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Bon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Bon Scott comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Bon Scott - 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 Bon Scott" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Bon a little better. This page describes the disguise Scott wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Bon Scott is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Scott sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Bon's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Bon Scott himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Bon Scott is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Bon Scott is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Scott probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Scott's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Bon Scott as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Bon does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Bon Scott is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Bon Scott is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Bon Scott needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Scott's work or outside social activities.
His desire to love and to be loved is very much apparent, very much on the surface, and Bon Scott is known for his personal charm and affectionate nature. He may also seem overly dependent on others' approval and appreciation of him.
His emotional responses, feelings, and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Bon Scott could be seen as a rather moody, inconsistent creature. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Scott may wish he was not so easy to read.
Scott may well have been discouraged from freely expressing himself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit Bon quite a bit.
It could be hard for Bon Scott to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Scott displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
He is intellectually alive, curious and willing to learn. Intellectually competitive, Bon Scott is fond of debating with others and could have some stormy proceedings. Bon present his position skillfully, defends it ably and finds satisfaction in doing so.
