mental interests and abilities
Gene Markey possesses vision and foresight, and his mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. He is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Markey is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and he is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. He is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Gene to deal with details and particulars. Gene Markey has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to him.
Markey enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge him intellectually. Gene Markey likes to show off his verbal or intellectual skills and to use his mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other manifestation of his creative intelligence appeal to him.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Markey 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 Markey'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, Gene Markey apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Gene Markey 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.
Gene Markey has very strong opinions and may be considered fanatical, extreme, dogmatic or one-sided in his views. Forcing his "truth" onto other people, playing intellectual power games with them or seeking to manipulate their thinking processes could lead to a great deal of conflict and opposition in his life and relationships. He may also be keenly aware of the ways in which the media, popular artists and advertising manipulate and shape our thoughts, for Gene can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances. Gene Markey has an intense way of communicating, and he may unintentionally come across as a threatening force.
He may have to deal with considerable nervous tension and is inclined to see everything a little cloudy. Expressing what is on his mind could be hard for Gene Markey, and he could either intentionally or inadvertently deceive others, or vice versa.
