Inside, he is quite different from what his freewheeling, confident, playful demeanor (mentioned in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although Sands likes to theorize and speculate and dream big dreams, he is basically clearheaded and practical. However, Tommy Sands also worries and frets a great deal, although others may not know this from his jovial demeanor.
At heart Tommy Sands is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Tommy Sands has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Sands can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Tommy Sands often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Sands can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Tommy Sands likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Sands. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Sands can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Sands tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Tommy has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Sands can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Tommy Sands seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Tommy Sands analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Sands allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Sands.
Tommy Sands has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Tommy has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Tommy and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Tommy Sands needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
