Micky Dolenz: What his questionnaire reveals about him
A curious person with two distinct aspects to his character—a sunny side, and a more sombre, anxious side.
He has a great appetite for life, a good deal of artistic talent, is dynamic and loves to confuse people who interview him. On the other hand, he tries to suppress some aspects of his character—his sensitivity, his creativity and poetic soul. This is a side of his character which seems to worry him.
He is an ideas man with a sound judgement and good, down-to-earth common sense. His moods are changeable, but more often gay than sad and he is extremely sensitive. He is good-hearted but tends to shun stability and things that last too long.
He is ideally suited to the world of show business.
What is strong in his character: He is intelligent, quick on the uptake and has a good imagination. He is enthusiastic, has a sense of fantasy and intellectual and artistic aptitudes. He is a frank person who is proud.
What is weak in his character: He lacks concentration, tends to exaggerate and lacks follow-through with his ideas. He lacks self control and is inclined to be indecisive. He worries, is not content with his situation in life and is distrusting.
Conclusions: Micky Dolenz is a person of contrasts. On the one hand a merry jester with a sense of farce. And on the other hand the dreamer, the poet, the sensitive lover.
