Behind Glavine's rather solid, conservative appearance (as described on the previous page), he really is a go-getter. While Tom Glavine seems rather soft, there is actually a lot of fight and spunk in him. His practical and down-to-earth side may be at odds with the part of Glavine that wants action, exploration, adventure and excitement, but these two facets of his nature can also complement one another. His pioneering and enterprising spirit is liable to get Tom Glavine in trouble several times, but eventually his determination to see a project through will succeed.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Tom Glavine believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Glavine's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Tom Glavine craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Tom likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Tom Glavine loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Tom Glavine also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Glavine's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Tom Glavine to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Tom Glavine would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Tom Glavine to do so.
