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 Barber comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Tony Barber - 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 Barber" 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 Barber wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Forward-looking and progressive, he is a person who supports change, innovation, and human advancement, and Tony Barber is often strongly committed to a humanitarian cause or social improvement. He is extremely aware of the interrelations between all people, and is always projecting personal issues unto a greater whole. Barber sees the political or social ramifications of personal actions, and he wishes to contribute something of value to the world, or at least to his community or group.
The ideals of equality, fairness, human rights, brotherhood, and social justice color Tony's whole outlook and approach to life. He is truly interested in the good of the whole and not only his own personal well-being.
Sometimes he may overlook or ignore his own and others' personal needs, desires, and feelings, especially if they do not conform to his ideals of how one should feel or act. Though he has little patience for conservative narrow-mindedness, Tony Barber himself is sometimes dogmatic about his beliefs and ideologies.
He is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development, and he is eclectic and cosmopolitan in his tastes. He may consider himself a "global citizen" rather than claiming a narrow, limited identification based on nationality, race, familial heritage, etc. Tony Barber is strongly influenced by his peer group and the flavor of the times in which he grew up, more so than by parental or family influences. He is involved and active in groups, community efforts, as well as cultural and progressive movements.
On a personal level, Tony Barber is friendly and expresses a kind of impersonal good will towards others. Barber probably has many acquaintances but few really close friends, and much of Barber's relationships with others are based on a sharing of common ideals and principles, rather than on emotional ties. Others see Tony Barber as a good friend and a comrade who is objective, fair and rather detached emotionally. Tony does not often show his emotions, and may be unsure about how to respond to others' emotional expression, for he tends to be very rational.
Tony Barber is also very independent and refuses to be possessed by any individual. Tony Barber is not comfortable with traditional sexual roles and is inclined to have "liberated" views about marriage, relationships, sharing of child rearing responsibilities, etc. Tony Barber needs to have a life outside of the personal, domestic sphere and to be involved with people on a broader scale. The nurturing of family ties, and close, deep, personal relationships may take a back seat to Barber's work or outside social activities.
At times Tony Barber comes across as being rather intense and possibly manipulative or controlling. Or he may get involved in relationships that are "fatal attractions", where he acts out compulsive, intense needs and desires. There is a sexual, seductive quality to Barber's demeanor that others notice right away. This may either repel them or draw them to Tony Barber irresistibly.
Tony Barber comes across as contained, and perhaps wary or mistrustful as well. He watches his step, and frequently withdraws if his environment does not feel welcoming and safe. As a result, Barber may seem much more conservative than he actually is. Tony is wary of committing social blunders and is extremely sensitive to criticism or rejection. As he matures, Tony Barber's confidence is likely to grow because he will learn to depend more on his own self-assessment..
