Although he can appear freewheeling, independent, and, at times, inconsistent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), at heart he is very loyal and constant. Eric Bana possesses a certain steadiness and firmness of will that may not be obvious to others until they get to know Eric well.
Proud and intensely individual, Eric Bana really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Eric Bana must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Eric Bana needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Eric has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Eric Bana also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Eric Bana, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Eric wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Bana appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Eric Bana also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Eric Bana loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Eric Bana likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Eric needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Bana's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Bana. Eric Bana has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Eric Bana may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Eric Bana 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. Eric Bana has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Eric blends charm and energy. Eric Bana has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Eric, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
