Although Sonny Bono comes across in a very gracious, tactful and considerate manner (as described on the previous page), he also holds some very definite points of view. Others may be surprised when they get to know Sonny and recognize his willfulness and strong opinions.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Sonny Bono cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Bono can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Sonny has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Sonny Bono probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Sonny Bono seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Sonny makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Sonny Bono thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Sonny Bono stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Sonny Bono was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Sonny has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Sonny Bono has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Sonny enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Sonny Bono has a strong sense of pride.
Sonny Bono tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Sonny Bono has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Sonny Bono a winner.
Sonny has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Sonny Bono tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Bono tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
While Sonny Bono does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Bono's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Sonny Bono tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Sonny Bono has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Sonny likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Sonny Bono that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Bono can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
He is an original! Sonny Bono radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Sonny does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Sonny Bono to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Bono tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
