mental interests and abilities
One of David's greatest assets is his ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, David Nelson works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. He is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. David Nelson insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. His sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. David Nelson also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
David has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. David Nelson 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 Nelson. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
David Nelson would be an excellent teacher or counselor for he listens sympathetically and encourages others to express their inner thoughts and feelings. People trust and confide in David, and he is able to read between the lines and sense what their feelings are as well as what they are saying. Nelson works well with and understands women as well as the emotional, feminine side of life. He is articulate on personal (rather than factual or technical) subjects. Keeping a diary or journal would be satisfying for Nelson. David Nelson also has a talent for learning languages.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), David Nelson is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Nelson combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. David has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
David Nelson has a deep, serious side to him and when out of balance, he tends to be pessimistic, cynical and overly rigid or judgmental in this thinking. These are tendencies Nelson may have to work on counteracting, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color David's thinking too much.
