approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Keith's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Keith Moon comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Keith Moon - 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 Keith Moon" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Keith a little better. This page describes the disguise Moon 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 Moon's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Keith Moon wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Keith Moon wants, Keith Moon usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Keith wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Keith Moon functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Keith Moon usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Moon approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Keith Moon also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
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 Moon. When Keith Moon 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, Keith Moon is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Keith Moon as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Keith Moon also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
He may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if he cannot sit still. Keith Moon seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Keith tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about Keith Moon which may make people around him distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel that Keith he is constantly scanning their inner motives, and he probably is. Moon 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 though, Keith Moon may be too suspicious and assigns negative intentions to innocent people. Keith should avoid looking always on the dark side.
Keith Moon appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Moon understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Keith Moon really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
