approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Brandon's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Brandon Boyd comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Brandon Boyd - 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 Brandon Boyd" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Brandon a little better. This page describes the disguise Boyd wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Brandon Boyd is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Brandon Boyd has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Boyd can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Brandon Boyd enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Brandon never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Brandon Boyd has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Boyd may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Brandon Boyd responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Brandon does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Boyd will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Boyd's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Brandon Boyd becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Brandon Boyd tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Energetic and decisive, Brandon Boyd assertively goes after what he wants. He is a doer and an achiever, with a positive "I can!" attitude. He is somewhat of a whiz with words, or a fast talker, running over other people's objections or needs in pursuit of his own aims. Boyd can be very convincing!
To others, he may come across as very gentle, malleable and easily taken in. As a result, people may take advantage of Brandon Boyd, especially through his pity or sympathy. If Brandon seems to be continually disappointed in or deceived by others, he should try to see how his own naiveté may be a contributing factor.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Brandon Boyd that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Boyd tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
