David Crosby meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, David projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Crosby is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. David Crosby may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.

He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables David to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, David Crosby feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way.

However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To David Crosby it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
