The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Evel's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Evel Knievel himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Evel Knievel is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.

Others see Evel Knievel as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Evel does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.

At times Evel Knievel comes across to others as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships which are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality in Knievel's glance or manner that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Evel Knievel irresistibly.
