mental interests and abilities
Jim Bakker 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. Bakker 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 Jim to deal with details and particulars. Jim Bakker has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to him.
Jim Bakker 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 Jim Bakker does.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Bakker tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Jim Bakker could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. He is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Jim Bakker has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Jim Bakker possesses excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Bakker gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion and is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. He is well-suited to any work that requires organized thinking, precision and a methodical approach. He enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive or technical. Jim Bakker tends to become a specialist in a given field of knowledge and to become engrossed in all of the small details involved, sometimes unaware that only few people share his particular interest, especially to the extent that he does.
Even though Bakker 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: Jim could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Jim Bakker may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Bakker's thinking.
Although Jim Bakker's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Bakker 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 is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Jim Bakker 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 Jim Bakker has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Jim Bakker must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Bakker wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Jim Bakker could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Jim Bakker because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Jim may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
He is adaptable and very social and loves to entertain. Because of his charm and outgoing personality, Jim Bakker draws others to him. Jim has an innate nurturing instinct and he loves to take care of others. But Bakker also knows what appeals to the public and could be a good salesman.
Jim Bakker has a restless mind and constantly occupies himself with new things and plans. Creative, inventive and resourceful, he is an indefatigable mental worker. Jim Bakker also has the need to pass his knowledge on to others and he does this very excitedly.
