The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Clyde Barrow, and he is also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating his thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for Barrow at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Clyde Barrow as a child, and he probably daydreamed a good deal as well. He is intuitive and able to sense the thoughts and feelings of others even before they say anything to him. Clyde often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Barrow can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Clyde Barrow is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Clyde Barrow as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
Clyde Barrow thinks a great deal about his career, his reputation and public image, and the way he makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Clyde Barrow does.

Clyde Barrow has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation.

Clyde Barrow 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 Barrow's concern. His "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
