mental interests and abilities
Björn has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. He is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once his curiosity has been satisfied. Björn likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not his strong points. Mentally restless, he may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Björn Borg has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. He also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Borg. His ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of his greatest strengths.
His mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters and Björn Borg is interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. He is very interested in finance, economics and moneymaking strategies.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Borg tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Björn Borg could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. He is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Björn Borg has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Björn Borg scrutinizes, analyzes, dissects and critically assesses ideas before accepting them. He may seem judgmental, serious and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. He prefers substantial conversation to superficial, meaningless banter. Björn Borg generally thinks carefully and thoroughly before speaking and he wishes that others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering or difficulties with interpersonal relationships may well be challenges for him.
Borg will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Björn Borg'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! Björn Borg incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
His intellectual interests tend to be offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired or new is right up Borg's alley. Björn Borg 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 Björn could pick up quite easily.
Even though Borg can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Björn could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Björn Borg may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Borg's thinking.
Although Björn Borg's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Borg can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Björn Borg, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Björn also tends to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any true relevance or validity. Björn Borg should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Björn is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though he rarely reveals his own. Björn Borg has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. His mind is penetrating and Björn Borg has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. He is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. He is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Borg is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of his conviction.
Björn has the ability to think and act efficiently and he seems to perceive what is unspoken or hidden. Björn Borg goes about realizing his plans in a fanatical way and has a tendency to over-work his nervous system.
