mental interests and abilities
Alan has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. He is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once his curiosity has been satisfied. Alan likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not his strong points. Mentally restless, he may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Alan Wilder has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. He also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Wilder. His ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of his greatest strengths.
Inquisitive and communicative, Alan's mind seems to be "on" all of the time and he is forever gathering information and sharing ideas. His attention span may be rather brief; Wilder has many and diverse interests, and is easily distracted. Wilder learns quickly, is eager to pass on what he is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Alan has talent for establishing rapport and communicating with people, great personnel skills, and he is adept at dealing with the public. Alan Wilder communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know Alan well. Wilder creates close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Alan Wilder understands them.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Alan Wilder is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Wilder combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Alan has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
Alan Wilder has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, he tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Wilder may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Alan's thinking too much.
Although Alan Wilder's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Wilder can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Alan Wilder, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Alan tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Alan Wilder should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
Alan Wilder has a strong desire to dominate people's minds and would make an excellent hypnotist. His own personal vibration seems to influence people and possibly could change their lives. It is important to use this power that Alan Wilder seems to have for the general good.
