mental interests and abilities
His mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Conan O'Brien dislikes being rushed or forced into give an opinion before he has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. He is also difficult to sway once his mind is made up.
Though slower at grasping new concepts or learning new skills, he is patient and persevering and in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever he sets his mind to for he is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Conan O'Brien succeeds, not so much because of his intellectual brilliance, but because he has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Conan has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Conan has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Conan O'Brien 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 O'Brien. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
He is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark O'Brien's interest. His interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Conan O'Brien is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. O'Brien could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Conan O'Brien has a particular interest in the past. He is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Conan O'Brien is nostalgic and he loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss his own experiences and feelings. Conan likes to read biographies and memoirs, and he probably keeps a diary or journal himself. Conan O'Brien also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. O'Brien sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not O'Brien's forte. At times he is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Conan O'Brien apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Conan O'Brien is prone to is that he projects his fantasies, wishes and dreams onto other people or external circumstances and simply fails to see what is actually at stake.
He is impatient, a bit nervous and easily irritated. Although he is sensitive to criticism, O'Brien can also be insensitive to the feelings of others. Conan O'Brien must consciously cultivate self-control in order to handle his somewhat quick temper.
Conan O'Brien seems to have a sense of hopelessness and he feels that everything he does is blocked or opposed by others. Conan O'Brien tends to under-estimate and belittles himself and is inclined to get lost in details. He may find it difficult to concentrate.
