mental interests and abilities
He is more of a poet than a rational scientist, for his mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Dana Barros, 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 Barros at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Dana Barros 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. Dana often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Barros can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Dana Barros is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Dana Barros as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
Dana Barros 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 some other form of communication is likely to be an important aspect of Dana Barros' work.

Dana Barros has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and a talent for assuaging strain in the relationships of other people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are a great asset when working with people one-on-one.
Although his tact was commented on above, Dana Barros can also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way he communicates, as mentioned below.
Dana Barros tends to seesaw between holding his tongue and lashing out. This verbal self-control seems to create internal tension, so that when Barros finally does speak his mind, there is quite a bit of resentment or energy between the lines. Learning to state an opinion without making it an attack is important. When out of balance, Dana Barros is prone to frequent, irritating little accidents such as cutting his fingers or getting burned.
Dana has an ongoing interest in learning and expanding his mental horizons. He enjoys traveling, philosophical discussions and exchanging ideas with those who have different experiences and viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, he is well-suited to law, consulting, diplomatic relations, as well as business. Dana Barros learns quickly, and can pick up on a new idea or concept with relative ease.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Barros' mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Dana Barros may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.

Dana has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Dana Barros has an aptitude for research or doing mental work that requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail and a methodical approach. He is conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, Dana Barros is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Even though Barros can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Dana could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Dana Barros may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Barros' thinking.
Although Dana Barros' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Barros can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
He is open and receptive to subjects that defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy and metaphysics, and Barros could teach these subjects to others. His mind is imaginative and inspired and Dana Barros has an aptitude for art and creative writing.
