mental interests and abilities
One of Art's greatest assets is his ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, Art Garfunkel works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. He is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. Art Garfunkel insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. His sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. Art Garfunkel also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Inquisitive and communicative, Art'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; Garfunkel has many and diverse interests, and is easily distracted. Garfunkel learns quickly, is eager to pass on what he is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Art Garfunkel 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. Garfunkel could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Art 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 Garfunkel in any work with people on a one-to-one level.
Art Garfunkel 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 Garfunkel 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 Art's thinking too much.
Garfunkel will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Art Garfunkel's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Art Garfunkel incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Art Garfunkel grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as Garfunkel tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them. His mind may race so quickly that it is hard for Art Garfunkel to sit still for any length of time. Art has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at his best. Art Garfunkel should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
