mental interests and abilities
Cliff has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in his work. Cliff Richard seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Cliff has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Richard could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity.Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Cliff Richard also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Cliff Richard tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Cliff Richard uses his mind to organize, classify, and bring order to his environment. He is interested in the refinement of his technical skills and abilities and is a stickler for details. Organizational skills, training others in his area of expertise, or work involving teaching and communications are highly probable for Richard.
Cliff Richard has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Richard likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Cliff Richard 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 application of his theories or insights are not really Richard's concern. His "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Richard. He is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When he is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Cliff Richard to keep it to himself. He has a bit of the evangelist in him.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Richard'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 Cliff Richard may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Cliff Richard 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. Cliff Richard 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.
