mental interests and abilities
He is highly interested in inner, subjective and personal issues, and his thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences and prejudices, than on reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to Cat. He is empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for he is a sensitive listener and deeply interested in people's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, Cat Stevens is drawn to education, art, poetry, music or mythology. He is not particularly confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share his thoughts in small, intimate groups. Stevens enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Cat has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Cat Stevens is the perpetual student who will be involved in higher education, philosophy or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing or communication are also areas of interest to Stevens. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
His mind is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Cat Stevens enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "his own little world" a good deal. He perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Cat Stevens has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Cat Stevens must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Stevens wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Cat Stevens could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Cat Stevens because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Cat may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
