Even though he has a tactful and generally pleasing way of expressing himself (as described on the previous page), Barry Gibb actually maintains high standards and can be quite a perfectionist (as discussed below). Inside he is more skeptical and judgmental than he appears.
At heart Barry Gibb is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Barry Gibb has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Gibb 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 Barry Gibb 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 Gibb 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. Barry Gibb 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 Gibb. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Gibb can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Gibb 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.

Barry has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook.
