mental interests and abilities
One of Leif's greatest assets is his ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, Leif Garrett works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. He is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. Leif Garrett insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. His sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. Leif Garrett also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
He is quite verbal and communicative and eager to get his own ideas and opinions across to others. Leif Garrett says what is on his mind. Others see Garrett as a lively, intelligent person, and perhaps something of a chatterbox at times.
Leif Garrett 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. Garrett could also sell objects of beauty such as artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Leif Garrett 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.
Leif Garrett has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. He is not a specialist for he seeks a broad overview; he wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest him.
He also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to his success in the business world. However, Garrett's optimism and grand vision can also get him into trouble. Leif Garrett sometimes promises more than he can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt him later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Garrett's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Leif Garrett may travel extensively in his work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for him.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Garrett's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Leif Garrett may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Leif Garrett 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. Leif Garrett has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Garrett 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. Leif Garrett 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.
Garrett will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Leif Garrett's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Leif Garrett incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
His intellectual interests tend toward the offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired, or new is right up Garrett's alley. Leif Garrett may not have the patience to study these things in depth, but he has an instinctive grasp of them. The esoteric sciences like astrology, numerology, and the like are subjects Leif could pick up quite easily.
Leif Garrett tends to be guided by wrong impressions of people and could easily deceive himself about their character. On the other hand, Leif may also try to exploit other people's weakness and may even think of becoming involved in things that are a little shady.
