Even though he is imaginative and emotional (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a very sharp, quick mind, as discussed below. Alan Wilder thinks and reasons - as well as feels and empathizes - with both his heart and his head to make his way in life.
Alan Wilder is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Wilder grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Alan Wilder craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Alan Wilder to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Alan toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Wilder.
Alan Wilder lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Alan had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Alan Wilder has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Alan Wilder also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Alan Wilder to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Alan has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Alan Wilder, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Wilder is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Alan enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Alan Wilder tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Alan Wilder has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Wilder's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Alan Wilder is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Alan's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
He is an original! Alan Wilder radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Alan does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Alan has an optimistic and harmonious personality and he happily goes about the attainment of his goals. Wilder knows how to make the best of life's opportunities and he gets along with everyone. Alan Wilder has the good fortune to live in pleasant and agreeable circumstances.
