Paul Hewson has intense, passionate loves and hates and is a jealously loyal and protective friend - or a fearsome foe.

There is a rather childish dependency on loved ones which can make Bono Vox cling to them, or to be very uncomfortable with any conflict which could conceivably lead to separation.

Gentle and often rather passive as well, he will not fight or assert himself, even when he needs to. Bono is very sympathetic and somewhat naive emotionally and must guard against being taken advantage of.
Paul Hewson has very deep feelings and profound attachments to people he cares about.

Gullible, romantic, and rather easily seduced, Paul Hewson frequently falls in love with an image in his own mind which he then projects onto the person, only to discover later that this person never really possessed the lovely qualities he endowed them with. Bono also confuses love with pity, sacrifice, or misplaced notions of "selfishness", and thus set himself up to be taken advantage of.
