He may appear proud and confident, but he is really much less so inside. In fact, he is often much too hard on himself and never satisfied with his accomplishments. Anton Bruckner should strive to be reasonable and patient with himself.
At heart Anton Bruckner is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power.

Conscientious and conservative, Bruckner can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Anton Bruckner often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Bruckner can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Anton Bruckner likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Bruckner. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Bruckner can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Bruckner tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Anton has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Bruckner can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.

He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Anton Bruckner analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Bruckner allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
Anton Bruckner has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Bruckner can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Anton Bruckner feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.

Anton Bruckner has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties.
