mental interests and abilities
One of Bob'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 with considerable social finesse, Bob Geldof 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. Bob Geldof insists upon fairness and seeks to bring harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people, and his diplomacy is a benefit in any business or social situation. Bob Geldof also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Bob has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Bob Geldof is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest Geldof. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
Bob has talent for establishing rapport and communicating with people, great personnel skills, and he is adept at dealing with the public. Bob Geldof communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know Bob well. Geldof creates close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Bob Geldof understands them.
Bob Geldof has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or at the very least, mental stimulation. Intellectually, Geldof likes to cover a lot of ground, to see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Bob Geldof 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 working-out of his theories or insights are not really his concern. Bob's "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of Universal Law, religion, philosophy, or other fields which are primarily abstract and conceptual appeal to him. Broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people, and teaching are all very suitable for Geldof. When he has enthusiasm for an idea it is very hard for Bob Geldof to keep it to him. There is a bit of the evangelist in Bob.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Bob Geldof is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Geldof combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Bob has an introverted frame of mind and he tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own and other people's inner lives and experiences.
Although broad-minded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Geldof's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Bob Geldof may seesaw between his optimism and sense of larger possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
His mind is serious and deep, and Bob Geldof will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until he has thoroughly considered and studied it. Bob has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Bob Geldof has an aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. He is conservative and something of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, Bob Geldof is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
