Johann Strauss I
mental interests and abilities
He is a progressive thinker and he is open and receptive to new technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the latest discoveries in any field. Johann Strauss I has high expectations and a profound belief that mankind's problems can be solved through the use of man's creative intelligence and inventive mind. Johann has no patience for those whose conservative, unimaginative outlook limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better future. Strauss also likes to keep abreast of current developments in world affairs, for he instinctively knows that what happens in one part of the world affects everyone. Johann Strauss I has a strong humanitarian drive. Practically speaking, Johann Strauss I has an aptitude for organization and enjoys being involved in cooperative endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
His mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters and Johann Strauss I is interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. He is very interested in finance, economics and moneymaking strategies.
Johann Strauss I appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design and beauty. He could develop considerable technical skills as an artist, designer, craftsman or creative writer. Strauss could also sell objects of beauty such as artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Johann Strauss I has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and a talent for assuaging strain in the relationships of other people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are a great asset when working with people one-on-one.
Although his tact was commented on above, Johann Strauss I can also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way he communicates, as mentioned below.
Johann Strauss I has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and he loves a vigorous discussion or debate. He expresses his thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. Johann dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Strauss is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and he tends to overstate his case or offend people with his unadorned frankness. Johann Strauss I can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. He has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Strauss enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
Johann Strauss I has a deep, serious side to him and when out of balance, he tends to be pessimistic, cynical and overly rigid or judgmental in this thinking. These are tendencies Strauss may have to work on counteracting, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Johann's thinking too much.
Even though Strauss 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: Johann could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Johann Strauss I may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Strauss' thinking.
Although Johann Strauss I's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Strauss 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, Johann Strauss I 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 Johann Strauss I has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Johann Strauss I must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Strauss wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Johann Strauss I could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Johann Strauss I because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Johann may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
