mental interests and abilities
Ingmar Bergman is a person of strong opinions and he expresses his views energetically and often dramatically. He is an entertaining speaker and tends to embellish or exaggerate in order to get his point across. Ingmar has an aptitude for storytelling and performing. Even if his arena is only the classroom or dining room table, Bergman puts on a good show. Ingmar has an abundance of creative ideas and he does not enjoy a job in which he has no creative input or does not share in the decision-making. Ingmar Bergman could be an effective politician, spokesperson, group leader, director or coach.
Ingmar Bergman 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 Ingmar Bergman does.
Ingmar Bergman 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. Ingmar Bergman 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 Bergman.
His mind is serious and deep, and Ingmar Bergman will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until he has thoroughly considered and studied it. Ingmar has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Ingmar Bergman has an aptitude for research or doing mental work that requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail and a methodical approach. He is conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, Ingmar Bergman is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Even though Bergman 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: Ingmar could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Ingmar Bergman may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Bergman's thinking.
Although Ingmar Bergman's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Bergman can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
His mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and Ingmar Bergman is often unable to express his thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art or music better express Bergman's ideas. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry Ingmar into strange and beautiful worlds, and he could foster the ability to transcribe some of his perceptions so as to share them with others, for example, by writing fantasy, fiction, lyrics or poetry. Bergman is sensitive to nuances and possesses intuitive or psychic gifts, but he may become confused between imagination and true perception. Ingmar Bergman has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty focusing his attention on practical or mundane activities. Ingmar Bergman is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
Ingmar has strong feelings of love and an emotional need to talk about love relationships problems. Beauty also is important for his emotional contentment and Ingmar Bergman dresses very tastefully. He is kind and popular and gives complements from the bottom of his heart.
His sense of reality seems a bit distorted and Bergman tends to always think the worst. His attitude toward the world is rather pessimistic and Ingmar Bergman places too much importance on matters that really are not important and ignores the ones that are.
He is likely to concentrate on himself a lot and tends to have melancholic thoughts, at times even brooding over something. Preferring to be alone, Ingmar Bergman always makes sure to have his own space. Very self-reliant, he has a need to work by himself.
