mental interests and abilities
Frank has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. He is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once his curiosity has been satisfied. Frank likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not his strong points. Mentally restless, he may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Frank Capra has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. He also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Capra. His ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of his greatest strengths.
Inquisitive and communicative, Frank's mind seems to be "on" all of the time and he is forever gathering information and sharing ideas. His attention span may be rather brief; Capra has many and diverse interests, and is easily distracted. Capra learns quickly, is eager to pass on what he is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Frank Capra has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and he enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, he knows how to drive his point home. Frank Capra also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players is a suitable arena for Capra.
Frank Capra 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, Capra's optimism and grand vision can also get him into trouble. Frank Capra 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 Capra's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Frank Capra may travel extensively in his work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for him.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Capra's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Frank Capra may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Frank Capra scrutinizes, analyzes, dissects and critically assesses ideas before accepting them. He may seem judgmental, serious and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. He prefers substantial conversation to superficial, meaningless banter. Frank Capra generally thinks carefully and thoroughly before speaking and he wishes that others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering or difficulties with interpersonal relationships may well be challenges for him.
