drive and ambition
Once Brian Jones sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Jones pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Brian labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Brian Jones to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Brian Jones has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Jones gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Brian Jones needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Brian's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Brian Jones also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Brian Jones is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and strength to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Jones gets so involved, and identifies so much, with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
He is very serious about attaining his goals and feels that keeping his nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. It is by working hard, keeping up his efforts and focusing on a single objective that Brian Jones achieves his aims in life. Brian exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what he desires. He meets obstacles stoically and struggles patiently through difficult circumstances. Brian Jones feels that he must rely on himself alone and that he must shoulder all of the responsibility. He can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much of himself and others. Brian often holds himself back, doubting his own power and ability. He may feel that he meets great resistance whenever he tries to assert himself or take initiative, which is very frustrating to Jones. However, Brian Jones has the power to endure and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Brian Jones finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Brian has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Dynamic, self-willed, and fiercely independent, he has extraordinary drive and energy. When Brian Jones wants something, he wants it this very minute, and he acts quickly, impulsively and decisively. His impatience inclines Brian Jones to be abrupt with people and reckless.

High-strung and often nervous and tense, Brian finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. Brian Jones is always on the go. He is restless, daring and experimental.

Brian Jones really wants to leave his mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for his contributions, and he is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve his aims, though, Brian Jones will have to compromise and "give" more than he may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in his life, may arise. To accomplish his goals, Brian may have to set aside some of his self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Brian Jones may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold his own and fulfill his own destiny.
