While Neil Young appears pleasant, even and harmonious (as described on the previous page), inside he is deeply emotional and quite passionate. Despite appearances, he is intense and sometimes one-sided and extreme. His smooth, agreeable manner masks a much more strong-willed character.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Neil Young 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. Neil Young 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.
Neil Young 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 Neil Young commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Neil 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 Young has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Neil 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, Neil does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Young can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Young can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Neil Young 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.
