approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Duff's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Duff McKagan comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Duff McKagan - 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 Duff McKagan" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Duff a little better. This page describes the disguise McKagan wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Duff McKagan 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. Duff McKagan has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. McKagan 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. Duff McKagan 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, Duff never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Duff McKagan has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, McKagan may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Duff McKagan responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Duff 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, McKagan 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 McKagan's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Duff McKagan 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. Duff McKagan 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.
Duff McKagan comes across as quirky, unusual, offbeat and "different". Sometimes he appears to provoke people and upset the status quo just by being himself. McKagan tends to be restless, excitable and somewhat ungrounded or nervous as well.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Duff McKagan which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Duff is constantly monitoring their inner motives, and he probably is. McKagan sees through anything phony, any false pretense - and he may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which he perceives so clearly) against them. At times, however, Duff McKagan may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Duff should avoid always looking on the dark side.
