mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, he is always eager to express his ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Tony has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, he is interested in another new idea or project. Tony Banks never seems to have enough time to do everything he wants. He is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things he believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if he honestly does not. He may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Tony does not speak up readily, even when he has a lot to say! Also, his mind tends to drift and Banks finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. His intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Tony Banks tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Intellectually, he is very competitive, argumentative sharp, and incisive. Tony Banks starts arguments and may stir up animosity with his impulsiveness and tactlessness. Banks always likes to have the last word, and others often feel that he does not really listen to what they are attempting to communicate; so while he may win the battle (especially if it is a battle of wits), he may well lose the war. In other words, Banks' relationships in all arenas suffer tremendously from Banks' aggressive way of getting his point across and his inability to take in what others are saying. Learning techniques to calm Banks' nervous system and relax his mind would be extremely beneficial for him.
He is an original thinker, capable of unique discoveries and innovations, but he tends to scatter his energies in too many directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions. Tony Banks grasps ideas very quickly and becomes impatient with duller or more conservative minds. A fast-moving, mentally stimulating, and unpredictable atmosphere suits Tony quite well, even though he may complain about the stress and the crazy pace. Tony Banks has a technical bent and is interested in the newest scientific theories and findings, electronics, computers, etc.
Tony Banks has a healthy, stimulating and encouraging family environment. Banks loves to exchange news and ideas with others and may be especially fond of associating with young people.
