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 Dennis Quaid, 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 Quaid at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Dennis Quaid 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. Dennis often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Quaid can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Dennis Quaid is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Dennis Quaid as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.

Dennis Quaid has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. He is not a specialist for he seeks a broad overview; he wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest him.
He also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to his success in the business world. However, Quaid's optimism and grand vision can also get him into trouble. Dennis Quaid sometimes promises more than he can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt him later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Quaid's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Dennis Quaid may travel extensively in his work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for him.
Even though Quaid can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind.

Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Dennis Quaid, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Dennis tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Dennis Quaid should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
Dennis Quaid has a probing, penetrating mind and in his view, nothing is as simple, innocent, or straightforward as it appears. He may not totally understand the hidden undercurrents he perceives, the secret machinations, the dark underside of a person or situation - but it intrigues Dennis and sometimes he cannot stop thinking about it.
