Herbert von Karajan
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 Herbert von Karajan, 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 von Karajan at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Herbert von Karajan 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. Herbert often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. von Karajan can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Herbert von Karajan is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Herbert von Karajan as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
Herbert has an introspective turn of mind and may enjoy keeping a journal or a record of his dreams and personal experiences, or learning about psychology, history, and the inner workings and emotional foundations of his own life. von Karajan is studious and somewhat of a bookworm.
His intellectual interests tend to be offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired or new is right up von Karajan's alley. Herbert von Karajan may not have the patience to study these things in depth, but he has an instinctive grasp of them. The esoteric sciences like astrology, numerology, and the like are subjects Herbert could pick up quite easily.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Herbert is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though he rarely reveals his own. Herbert von Karajan has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. His mind is penetrating and Herbert von Karajan 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. von Karajan is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of his conviction.
Herbert von Karajan tends to be guided by wrong impressions of people and could easily deceive himself about their character. On the other hand, Herbert may also try to exploit other people's weakness and may even think of becoming involved in things that are a little shady.
von Karajan shows an interest in other people and receiving and giving mental stimuli is important to him. He is likely to study or do some research work together with others and sometimes may even have the same thoughts on a certain subject.
