Although Paul Banks is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Banks' course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Paul Banks has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Paul Banks will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Banks can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Paul Banks also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Paul Banks has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Banks for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Paul Banks usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Paul Banks also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Paul has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Banks' tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Paul Banks lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Banks. Paul Banks 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. Paul Banks may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Paul Banks often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Paul Banks cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Paul finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Banks to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Paul Banks has a very creative, inventive streak.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Paul Banks does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Banks' life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Paul Banks and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
