This page describes the disguise Parker wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Tony Parker 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. Parker 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.
