He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue.

He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything.

Rod Stewart very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Stewart is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young.
