The following is a description of Elton's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Elton John 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 Elton John" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Elton a little better. This page describes the disguise John wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, Elton loves adventure, change and exploring new territory. He is not happy with being confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. Elton John has a strong sense of restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything he has yet experienced, and he often lives in his dreams and visions for the future. Elton John tends to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else, and he likes to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, he always expects something better ahead. Elton John loves to have a goal, something to aim for, but once he achieves it he is on to something else. He is ever on the lookout for new opportunities and he is a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for him. Elton John has great faith in life and he bounces back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom-loving and independent, Elton John cannot tolerate being caged in for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect his need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments, responsibilities and relationships often weigh heavily upon Elton and he may resist "growing up" and assuming the limitations of adult life.
He is friendly and outgoing and has a great sense of fun and playfulness. He is also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about his convictions and beliefs. Sometimes Elton John gets carried away with his enthusiasm of the moment and he tends to exaggerate. He is often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and he is usually pretty convincing. He does everything in a big way, a generous way. John likes to have the best, and he heartily dislikes stinginess, small mindedness or pettiness. His vision is always large. He is able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and he is well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Others see Elton John as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. He may also be seen as a wise person since he does not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and is able to communicate a broader perspective that opens up new horizons. He is a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and he inspires and encourages others to keep looking ahead.
John may seem unpredictable and unreliable in the way he behaves towards others - or his personal relationships may seem constantly in flux, so that Elton John is always a bit off center.

At times his feisty spirit, aggressiveness, and a too-forceful approach get Elton into trouble. Elton John tends to take offense when none was intended. He may be viewed as a troublemaker, an upstart, or an egotist with little concern for others. Elton John needs to moderate his temper to avoid constant irritation with those in his environment.
There is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about Elton John that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Also, John tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
Elton John seems to enjoy projecting himself differently to others than he really is, giving them a false impression of himself. He is inclined to associate with odd and peculiar people and is likely to have very strange romantic relationships.
