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 Ed Broadbent, 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 Broadbent at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Ed Broadbent 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. Ed often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Broadbent can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Ed Broadbent is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Ed Broadbent as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
Ed Broadbent has a good understanding of group trends, politics, mass movements and community affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something Broadbent does well and is likely to be involved with. Ed is an accomplished team player and is likely to be part of a successful group or large organization.
He is a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, relationships and problems of others. Broadbent is a sympathetic listener and he also loves to (endlessly!) discuss his own experiences and feelings. Ed Broadbent tends to be very personal and subjective in his point of view. He has a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires and other things that are meaningful to them. Ed Broadbent could be an excellent interviewer, reporter or biographer. Idle talk and gossip are his vices.
The study of the past - history, archeology, genealogy, etc. - is of great interest to him. Psychology, symbolism, mythology and languages are also areas that Ed Broadbent is drawn to.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Ed Broadbent is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Broadbent combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Ed 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.
His mind is serious and deep, and Ed Broadbent will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until he has thoroughly considered and studied it. Ed has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Ed Broadbent 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, Ed Broadbent is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Although Ed Broadbent's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Broadbent 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.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Broadbent 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 Broadbent'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, Ed Broadbent apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Ed Broadbent 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.
He is self-assured and confident and has the necessary energy to carry out his objectives. Ed Broadbent makes his plans with sufficient forethought and always keeps in mind to proceed according to the currently prevailing regulations.
