mental interests and abilities
His mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Alec Baldwin dislikes being rushed or forced to give an opinion before he has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. He is also difficult to influence once his mind is made up.
Though slower to grasp new concepts or learn new skills, he is patient and persevering and, in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever he puts his mind and hand to, for he is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Alec Baldwin succeeds not so much because of his mental brilliance, but because he has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Alec has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Alec Baldwin thinks a great deal about his career, his reputation and public image, and the way he makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Alec Baldwin does.
Alec Baldwin appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. He could develop great technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Baldwin could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Alec has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and a talent for assuaging strain in the relationships of other people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are a great benefit to Baldwin in any work with people on a one-to-one level.
Alec Baldwin has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or at the very least, mental stimulation. Intellectually, Baldwin likes to cover a lot of ground, to see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Alec Baldwin naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical working-out of his theories or insights are not really his concern. Alec's "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of Universal Law, religion, philosophy, or other fields which are primarily abstract and conceptual appeal to him. Broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people, and teaching are all very suitable for Baldwin. When he has enthusiasm for an idea it is very hard for Alec Baldwin to keep it to him. There is a bit of the evangelist in Alec.
Although broad-minded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Baldwin's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Alec Baldwin may seesaw between his optimism and sense of larger possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Alec Baldwin possesses excellent powers of concentration, and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Baldwin gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion, and he is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. He is well-suited to any work which requires organized thinking, precision, and a methodical approach. He enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive, or technical. Alec Baldwin tends to become a specialist in some field of knowledge, and to become engrossed in all of the small details of that area, sometimes not realizing that only few people share his particular interest, especially to the extent that he does.
Although Alec Baldwin's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Baldwin can be quite the opposite. Periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract, or imponderable subjects are also likely, as discussed below.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful, and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Alec Baldwin sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences and fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic are not his forte. At times Baldwin is able to perceive things that other people do not, the "aura" of a place or a person for instance, while at the same time Alec Baldwin apparently does not see or rather overlooks things that are glaringly obvious to others. One problem Alec Baldwin is prone to is that he projects his fantasies, wishes, and dreams on to other people or an outside situation, and simply does not see what is actually there.
His mind is deep and penetrating and he is interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper aspects of the human psyche. Alec Baldwin possesses an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. Alec Baldwin is also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
Alec Baldwin has good powers of perception and visualization and an intense imagination. Greatly inspired, he feels optimistic and hopeful for the future. He is likely to talk a lot about his plans and also is inclined to put on an act at times.
He is very sociable and has a talent for organizing and arranging associations or groups of people. Alec Baldwin is likely to have good cooperation between people and he proudly shares his successes with them.
