His intellectual interests tend to be offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired or new is right up Etchison's alley.

His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Etchison 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 Etchison'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, Dennis Etchison apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Dennis Etchison 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.
