He is easygoing, agreeable and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin anew on a positive note. He enjoys making others comfortable and happy, and he sometimes overdoes his generosity. Bret Michaels often feels that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", thereby becoming lazy and lackadaisical.
There is another side to Bret Michaels as well, a rather introverted, self-contained, even pessimistic side which tempers his good cheer and generosity, as discussed below.
Bret Michaels often feels that he must do something or be something other than what he is in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. He is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though he may appear cool or distant, Michaels actually cares very much about being included. Because he is so sensitive, it may seem easier for Bret Michaels to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises he may endure once he lets others really know him in an intimate, personal way. His reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Bret Michaels becomes very attached to the few people he considers "real friends". Michaels can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if he views them as times to nourish himself and develop his own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
His thinking and acting are strongly influenced by his feelings. Bret has great mental energy, is somewhat restless, curious and impatient, and at times he may need to slow down. Bret Michaels loves debate and argument and also has good writing ability.

He is open and unconventional in his attitude towards love relationships, romance and sex. He enjoys socializing, bringing people together and having many friends of both sexes. Bret Michaels values friendship very highly and in fact, he is more comfortable being a friend than a lover. Bret desires an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with his love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to him. The traditional "husband" and "wife" roles do not appeal to Michaels, and he abhors jealousy and possessiveness since he feels that no person truly "belongs" to another. Bret Michaels appreciates relationships in which his love partner allows him plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
Bret Michaels craves very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer stormy, tumultuous relationships to ones that are calm but lack vitality and passion. Bret loves wholeheartedly and expects all-consuming, total devotion and attention from his partner. Casual, light relationships hold no appeal for Michaels.
Intimacy does not come easily to Bret Michaels and he may appear cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, Michaels does not trust others very easily and it takes a long time to break down all of his barriers and defenses. He may feel that he has few friends or people that really care about him. Bret Michaels needs to learn to value and love himself more and to express his appreciation for others more openly.
Bret Michaels has a very romantic, idealistic vision of love relationships and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh-and-blood human being ever quite lives up to his dream image of the "perfect love". Though Bret frequently fantasizes about love and romance - he may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. When it comes to love, Michaels can be evasive and dishonest with himself and others. Some of Michaels' love yearnings may be expressed through art, music or an involvement with mysticism.
He is prone to getting involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships - "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel Bret Michaels to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, Michaels may be tempted to use his own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if his intentions are basically good, Bret Michaels will find that his closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unsavory aspects of his character (such as jealousy and the desire to dominate or to be a victim) keep surfacing. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.
