Martin's quiet, unassuming, rather modest facade (described in the previous chapter) is liable to mask certain far less modest goals and ambitions in life. Materially (or in other ways), he is much more aspiring than he may seem, and reaching the top academically or professionally is really important to him.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Martin. Tony Martin will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Tony Martin has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Tony Martin seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Tony has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Tony Martin has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Tony Martin plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Martin.
Martin's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.

Martin invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Tony Martin confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Martin to claim his own.

Martin seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Tony Martin tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Tony Martin should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
