approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Tony's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Tony Hawk comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tony Hawk - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Tony Hawk" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Tony a little better. This page describes the disguise Hawk wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Tony Hawk likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Hawk must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Tony does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
Tony Hawk also has a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and is deeply offended if someone treats him in a humiliating or dishonorable way. Hawk will rarely confront the offender - he is too proud to do so - but he will lose his affection and respect for them. Tony dislikes pettiness and hates to be snubbed or ignored.
Hawk admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When Tony Hawk befriends someone, Hawk is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. He is very giving and generous, but his gifts are never anonymous - Tony expects recognition and appreciation for them. He also expects the intense loyalty that he offers to his dear ones to be reciprocated. However, Tony Hawk often has trouble developing relationships with people who are as strong as himself, for he does not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If he is not in the leading role, he aspires to be and will compete with the person who is.
Tony Hawk has great heart and courage, and people often look to him for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. Tony always puts his best face forward and rarely allows others to see him hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. Tony Hawk also has a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although he does not like others to realize just how important it is to him.
His outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. His own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interest Tony more than anything else. Tony Hawk feels that if he does his best where he is, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
Tony Hawk appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Tony Hawk may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
To others, Tony Hawk appears capable, mature and down to earth. Even when he was young, there was a certain practicality and responsible air about Tony that inspired people to rely on him. Hawk keeps his cool in most situations.
