Even though he is imaginative and emotional (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a very sharp, quick mind, as discussed below. Allen Ginsberg thinks and reasons - as well as feels and empathizes - with both his heart and his head to make his way in life.
Allen Ginsberg 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. Ginsberg grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Allen Ginsberg craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Allen Ginsberg 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 Allen 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 Ginsberg.
Allen Ginsberg 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 Allen had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Allen Ginsberg 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.
Allen Ginsberg 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 Allen Ginsberg 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. Allen 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 Allen Ginsberg, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Ginsberg is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Allen enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Allen Ginsberg 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. Allen Ginsberg has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Allen Ginsberg often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Allen has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Allen sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Allen really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
His physique tends to be sensitive and his vitality may be a bit low. Allen Ginsberg is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes his idealism could be confused or impractical, and Ginsberg can be rebellious or else apathetic.
