Although Phil Collins comes across in a very gracious, tactful and considerate manner (as described on the previous page), he also holds some very definite points of view. Others may be surprised when they get to know Phil and recognize his willfulness and strong opinions.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Phil Collins cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Collins can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Phil has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Phil Collins probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Phil Collins seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Phil makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Phil Collins thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Phil Collins stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Phil Collins was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Phil has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Phil Collins prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Collins invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Phil Collins tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Phil has what it takes to make his own way in life. He may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
