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 Ernst Jünger, 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 Jünger at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Ernst Jünger 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. Ernst often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Jünger can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Ernst Jünger is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Ernst Jünger as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
Ernst has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Ernst Jünger is the perpetual student who will be involved in higher education, philosophy or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing or communication are also areas of interest to Jünger. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
Ernst has a knack for establishing a rapport and communicating with people, is blessed with great interpersonal skills, and is adept at dealing with the public. Ernst Jünger communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know Ernst well. Jünger fosters close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Ernst Jünger understands them.
His desire to make a point sometime overrides his receptivity to others' views. He can be a good listener, but Ernst Jünger often finds it hard not to speak out.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Jünger tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Ernst Jünger could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. He is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Ernst Jünger has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Even though Jünger can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Ernst could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Ernst Jünger may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Jünger's thinking.
His mind is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Ernst Jünger enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "his own little world" a good deal. He perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Ernst Jünger has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Ernst Jünger must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Jünger wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Ernst Jünger could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Ernst Jünger because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Ernst may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Ernst is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though he rarely reveals his own. Ernst Jünger has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. His mind is penetrating and Ernst Jünger has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. He is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. He is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Jünger is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of his conviction.
