Well grounded and pragmatic, Johnson tends to develop specialized skills and technical expertise in a practical field. Knowledge, ideas and theories do not really interest Lyndon Johnson unless they are useful in a tangible way. He is inclined to analyze, measure, and dissect everything and to miss nuances and subtle shades of feeling and meaning in the process. His strengths lie in his precise thinking, careful craftsmanship and mastery of technical skills. Lyndon Johnson tends to be very good at what he does and critical of others' work if it does not meet his high standards.
He is quite verbal and communicative and eager to get his own ideas and opinions across to others. Lyndon Johnson says what is on his mind. Others see Johnson as a lively, intelligent person, and perhaps something of a chatterbox at times.
He is a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, relationships and problems of others.

He has a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires and other things that are meaningful to them. Lyndon Johnson could be an excellent interviewer, reporter or biographer. Idle talk and gossip are his vices.
The study of the past - history, archeology, genealogy, etc. - is of great interest to him. Psychology, symbolism, mythology and languages are also areas that Lyndon Johnson is drawn to.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Lyndon Johnson is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity.

Lyndon has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
Lyndon Johnson has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, he tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Johnson may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on.

Independent and freethinking, Lyndon Johnson dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and he especially does not like being told how to think, for Lyndon insists on discovering his own truth.
