mental interests and abilities
Le Corbusier has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in his work. Le Corbusier seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Le Corbusier has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Charles Jeanneret could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity.Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Le Corbusier also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Le Corbusier tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Charles Jeanneret enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge him intellectually. Le Corbusier likes to show off his verbal or intellectual skills and to use his mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other display of his creative intelligence appeal to him.
Le Corbusier has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to his careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Le Corbusier has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Charles Jeanneret can get entirely wrapped up in his own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. He is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in his work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, he may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. He prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Le Corbusier may also be distrustful or fearful of anything he cannot understand with his rational mind. He is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
Although Le Corbusier's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Charles Jeanneret 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.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Le Corbusier, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Le Corbusier tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Le Corbusier should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
