At first he may simply come across as clever and witty (as described on the previous page), but it soon becomes clear that there are ideals and causes that he takes very much to heart. As described below, Brandon Boyd is an innovator and an idealist at heart. He is an active person who needs to participate in community activities and is likely to be successful at whatever academic or business profession he chooses.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Brandon Boyd cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Boyd can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Brandon has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Brandon Boyd probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Brandon Boyd seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Brandon makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Brandon Boyd thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Brandon Boyd stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Brandon Boyd was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Brandon has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Boyd. Brandon Boyd has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Brandon Boyd may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Brandon Boyd overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Brandon Boyd attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Brandon has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Brandon and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Brandon Boyd needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
Brandon Boyd has a restless and somewhat nervous manner and he attracts attention through his initiative and originality. He is drawn to unusual friends and acquaintances, and because of his confidence may be regarded as a leader in his sphere.
