mental interests and abilities
One of Bernard'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, Bernard Kerik 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. Bernard Kerik 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. Bernard Kerik also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Inquisitive and communicative, Bernard'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; Kerik has many and diverse interests, and is easily distracted. Kerik learns quickly, is eager to pass on what he is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Bernard Kerik has very little interest in or knack for the technical or mechanical. Kerik's forte lies in the human, personal side of life, people, psychology and life's inner workings. Bernard Kerik understands children and enjoys conversing with, counseling, listening to and learning about them. Kerik also needs a variety of social and intellectual experiences on a regular basis, and becomes restless, nervous, and irritable if he cannot get out and about. Kerik often needs to be mobile, to go for a walk or a drive, to regroup and to reestablish his emotional equilibrium. Bernard Kerik tends to dwell on the past, to ponder its significance, and at times, to long for it. Nostalgia and sentimentality substantially color Bernard's thinking.
His intellectual interests tend toward the offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired, or new is right up Kerik's alley. Bernard Kerik may not have the patience to study these things in depth, but he has an instinctive grasp of them. The esoteric sciences like astrology, numerology, and the like are subjects Bernard could pick up quite easily.
He may find it difficult to think logically and objectively. Kerik can also be too trusting and unrealistic, and others may take advantage of Bernard or use him. Bernard Kerik tends to avoid confrontation, may withdraw and pretend to agree with others to avoid arguments.
He is sensitive and compassionate in his dealings with other people. But Bernard Kerik tends to get lost in his fantasies when it comes to love relationships; he is inclined to exaggerate his emotions and could easily be deceived or misled.
