Though Bon Scott seems quite rational and even coolly detached and impersonal at times (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is precisely the opposite when people really get to know him. He is rather sentimental. And though he appears unconventional or nonconforming, Bon's ties to the past and to family history and tradition runs deep. Also, Scott can be very effective in working for human rights and any issues related to women, children, and the family.
Bon has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. Maintaining a connection with his roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very important to Scott. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Scott tends to cling to whatever is dear to him, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Bon likes to be needed, to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Bon Scott has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and he centers much of his life on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress Bon Scott more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and by his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations in a fair, objective manner for his personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in. Bon Scott takes things very personally, and sometimes builds a wall around him to protect himself from pain and rejection. Bon Scott feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs. Bon Scott needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish himself; otherwise Bon Scott becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Bon Scott functions in an instinctive, non-rational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination, and instincts. Scott often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Bon Scott also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Scott's strong points. His faults include an inability to release the past and go forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when he meets hardships in life.
Bon Scott has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Bon enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Bon Scott has a strong sense of pride.
Bon has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Bon Scott tends to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through being overly optimistic. However, he never loses his hopes for the future. Restlessness and discontent with responsibilities and limitations in life can be troublesome for Scott.
He may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of his endeavors. Scott always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. Bon Scott has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
Bon Scott has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
Bon Scott tends to impose his will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand he may also be imposed upon by others. Bon feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
