Behind Sorum's seemingly rational, detached, cool and objective demeanor (as described on the previous page), he is really far more passionate and emotionally intense, as described below.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Matt Sorum is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Matt Sorum usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Matt Sorum also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Matt Sorum commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Matt merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Sorum has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Matt will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Matt does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Sorum can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Sorum can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Matt Sorum emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Matt Sorum loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Matt never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Matt Sorum tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Sorum is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Matt Sorum is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Matt Sorum is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Sorum has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
Matt Sorum has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Matt tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
