The following is a description of Buster's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Buster Keaton comes across, the face he shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Buster Keaton" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Buster a little better. This page describes the disguise Keaton wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Keaton's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Buster Keaton wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Buster Keaton wants, Buster Keaton usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially.

In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Keaton. When Buster Keaton commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Buster Keaton is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway.
