mental interests and abilities
Clear, objective, and realistic, he is unimpressed by exaggerated claims or promises. Jörg Haider insists upon being shown facts to back up any statement he hears, and his natural skepticism often borders on cynicism. Haider approaches problems clearly and rationally and maintains his poise and objectivity even in the midst of critical situations. Anyone seeking Haider's advice is certain to get an unemotional and unbiased assessment of their situation, and Jörg therefore makes a good arbitrator or judge. He is thorough, conscientious, and disciplined in his thinking, and has an aptitude for business, organization, and administration. Jörg Haider is also a good strategist, and will plan and patiently follow a realistic course which will lead to his eventual success. Serious-minded and studious, Haider enjoys quiet time alone for thinking or reading.
He is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving feedback, and sharing information. Jörg Haider is drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom he can communicate and from whom he can learn. Jörg loves to have an audience to hear his ideas, and he also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
Jörg Haider possesses excellent powers of concentration, and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Haider gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion, and he is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. He is well-suited to any work which requires organized thinking, precision, and a methodical approach. He enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive, or technical. Jörg Haider tends to become a specialist in some field of knowledge, and to become engrossed in all of the small details of that area, sometimes not realizing that only few people share his particular interest, especially to the extent that he does.
Although Jörg Haider's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Haider can be quite the opposite. Periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract, or imponderable subjects are also likely, as discussed below.
His mind is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic, or musical abilities. As a child, Jörg Haider enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing, pretending, and probably lived in "his own little world" a good deal. Jörg Haider perceives things which are not obvious to other people and he has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Haider must learn to discriminate between a true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Jörg Haider wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, he could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Jörg Haider because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Jörg may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Jörg Haider has a probing, penetrating mind and in his view, nothing is as simple, innocent, or straightforward as it appears. He may not totally understand the hidden undercurrents he perceives, the secret machinations, the dark underside of a person or situation - but it intrigues Jörg and sometimes he cannot stop thinking about it. Once Haider's interest has been piqued, he can become obsessed with getting to the bottom of the matter. At times Jörg Haider makes more of something than is actually the case, like assigning dark, convoluted motives to a person where none exist.
