Behind Banks' rather solid, conservative appearance (as described on the previous page), he really is a go-getter. While Tony Banks seems rather soft, there is actually a lot of fight and spunk in him. His practical and down-to-earth side may be at odds with the part of Banks that wants action, exploration, adventure and excitement, but these two facets of his nature can also complement one another. His pioneering and enterprising spirit is liable to get Tony Banks in trouble several times, but eventually his determination to see a project through will succeed.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Tony Banks believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Banks' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Tony Banks craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Tony likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Tony Banks loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Tony Banks also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Banks, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Tony Banks believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Tony Banks hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Banks' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Tony Banks to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Tony Banks would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Tony Banks to do so.
Tony Banks tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Banks.
Tony Banks 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. Tony Banks has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Tony Banks is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Banks has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.

Tony Banks has a harmonious and graceful manner along with an appreciation of beautiful, perhaps even artistically furnished surroundings. Tony may be quite attractive and he is likely to make a favorable impression on everyone.
