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 Jacques Lacan, 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 Lacan at times he may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Jacques Lacan 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. Jacques often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions are usually correct. Lacan can be somewhat absent-minded and he becomes so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooks things in his immediate, tangible environment. Jacques Lacan is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Jacques Lacan as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of his greatest gifts.
He is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviews, discussions, debates, counseling, negotiations, providing and obtaining feedback, and sharing information. Jacques Lacan is drawn to intelligent and verbal people with whom he can communicate and from whom he can learn. Jacques loves to have an audience to hear his ideas, and he also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
His mind is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Jacques Lacan enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "his own little world" a good deal. He perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Jacques Lacan has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Jacques Lacan must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Lacan wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Jacques Lacan could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Jacques Lacan because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Jacques may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
