mental interests and abilities
Deepak has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in his work. Deepak Chopra seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Deepak has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Chopra could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Deepak Chopra also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Deepak Chopra tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
The mysterious and the unknown fascinate Deepak Chopra and he may investigate the supernatural, the hidden or the taboo. Chopra needs to know what is going on behind the scenes. He is also deeply curious or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.
Deepak Chopra has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and he loves a vigorous discussion or debate. He expresses his thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. Deepak dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Chopra is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and he tends to overstate his case or offend people with his unadorned frankness. Deepak Chopra can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. He has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Chopra enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Deepak Chopra grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as Chopra tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them. His mind may race so quickly that it is hard for Deepak Chopra to sit still for any length of time. Deepak has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at his best. Deepak Chopra should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
