Behind Ant's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), he is much more passionate and emotional. Adam Ant often conceals his vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Adam Ant 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. Adam Ant 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.
Adam Ant 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 Adam Ant commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Adam 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 Ant has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Adam 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, Adam does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Ant can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Ant can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Adam Ant 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.
Adam Ant loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Adam never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Adam Ant tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Ant is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Adam Ant 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.
Adam Ant often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Adam has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Adam sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Adam really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Adam Ant often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
While Adam Ant 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!).
Adam Ant 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. Adam likes to be in control of himself.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Adam Ant is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
