mental interests and abilities
Barack Obama is a person of strong opinions and he expresses his views energetically and often dramatically. He is an entertaining speaker and tends to embellish or exaggerate in order to get his point across. Barack has an aptitude for storytelling and performing. Even if his arena is only the classroom or dining room table, Obama puts on a good show. Barack has an abundance of creative ideas and he does not enjoy a job in which he has no creative input or does not share in the decision-making. Barack Obama could be an effective politician, spokesperson, group leader, director or coach.
Barack Obama uses his mind to organize, classify and bring order to his environment. He is interested in refining his technical skills and abilities and is a stickler for details. Obama is highly likely to be engaged in organizational skills, training others in his area of expertise, or work involving teaching and communications.
Barack has a knack for establishing a rapport and communicating with people, is blessed with great interpersonal skills, and is adept at dealing with the public. Barack Obama communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know Barack well. Obama fosters close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Barack Obama understands them.
Barack Obama has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Obama likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Barack Obama 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 application of his theories or insights are not really Obama's concern. His "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Obama. He is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When he is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Barack Obama to keep it to himself. He has a bit of the evangelist in him.
