mental interests and abilities
One of Friedrich'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 with considerable social finesse, Friedrich Nietzsche 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. Friedrich Nietzsche insists upon fairness and seeks to bring harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people, and his diplomacy is a benefit in any business or social situation. Friedrich Nietzsche also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Friedrich Nietzsche thinks a great deal about his career, his reputation and public image, and the way he makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Friedrich Nietzsche does.
Friedrich Nietzsche has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and he loves a vigorous discussion or debate. He expresses his thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. Friedrich dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another's argument. At times Nietzsche is verbally aggressive and abrasive to others, and he tends to overstate his case or offend people by his unadorned frankness. Friedrich Nietzsche can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer, or salesman. He has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Nietzsche enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
Friedrich Nietzsche possesses excellent powers of concentration, and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Nietzsche gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion, and he is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. He is well-suited to any work which requires organized thinking, precision, and a methodical approach. He enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive, or technical. Friedrich Nietzsche tends to become a specialist in some field of knowledge, and to become engrossed in all of the small details of that area, sometimes not realizing that only few people share his particular interest, especially to the extent that he does.
Nietzsche will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. Above, Friedrich Nietzsche's thinking is depicted as careful, conservative, methodical, and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information characterizes his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Friedrich Nietzsche incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired, inventive and the deductive, ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Friedrich Nietzsche has a brilliant, inventive mind, and his sudden flashes of insight and clear perception enable him to understand concepts very quickly. At times his mind dances from one subject to the next so rapidly that he cannot thoroughly take in and digest any of them. Friedrich gets bored and restless, and he intellectually rebel against too much tedium. He may be abrupt and impatient with people who plan and plod along, because Friedrich Nietzsche likes to be open to inspiration and be spontaneous. Nietzsche could invent or discover something truly original, unique, or unheard of.
