mental interests and abilities
He is more of a poet than a rational scientist, for his mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Aristide Briand, and he is also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating his thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for Briand at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Aristide Briand as a child, and he probably daydreamed a good deal as well. He is intuitive and able to sense the thoughts and feelings of others even before they say anything to him. Aristide often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Briand can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Aristide Briand is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Aristide Briand as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.

The study of the past - history, archeology, genealogy, etc. - is of great interest to him. Psychology, symbolism, mythology and languages are also areas that Aristide Briand is drawn to.
He is an original thinker, capable of unique discoveries and innovations, but he tends to scatter his energies in too many directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions.
