mental interests and abilities
Jon has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in his work. Jon Dough seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Jon has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Dough could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Jon Dough also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Jon Dough tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Jon has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Jon Dough is the perpetual student who will be involved in higher education, philosophy or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing or communication are also areas of interest to Dough. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Dough tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Jon Dough 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. Jon Dough has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Even though Dough 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: Jon could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Jon Dough may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Dough's thinking.
His mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and Jon Dough is often unable to express his thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art or music better express Dough's ideas. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry Jon 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. Dough is sensitive to nuances and possesses intuitive or psychic gifts, but he may become confused between imagination and true perception. Jon Dough has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty focusing his attention on practical or mundane activities. Jon Dough is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
His mind is marked by a penetrating depth and thoroughness. Jon Dough ferrets out the facts, and particularly enjoys problems with an element of mystery, darkness or the forbidden. Generally, Dough does not shy away from the truth, no matter how unpleasant it is.
