mental interests and abilities
One of Edward'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, Edward Doane 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. Edward Doane 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. Edward Doane also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
His mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters, and Edward Doane is interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. He is very interested in finance, economics, and moneymaking strategies.
He is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Doane's interest. His interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Edward Doane is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. Doane could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Edward Doane has a particular interest in the past. He is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Edward Doane is nostalgic and he loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss his own experiences and feelings. Edward likes to read biographies and memoirs, and he probably keeps a diary or journal himself. Edward Doane also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Edward Doane has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Doane likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Edward Doane naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of his theories or insights are not really Doane's concern. His "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Doane. He is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When he is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Edward Doane to keep it to himself. He has a bit of the evangelist in him.
