His gift for gab (discussed below), combined with his agreeable and accommodating nature (described in the previous chapter), make Bob Hope a real "people person", with an almost constant need for dialogue and personal interchange. Bob could succeed as a public relations consultant, an interviewer or a host.
Bob Hope is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Hope grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Bob Hope craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Bob Hope to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Bob toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Hope.
Bob Hope lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Bob had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Bob Hope has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Bob Hope also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Bob Hope to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Bob has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Bob Hope craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Bob very intimately. Bob Hope is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Bob has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Realistic and practical, Bob Hope sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Hope possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Bob Hope also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Hope often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
