Mao Tse Tung
mental interests and abilities
Mao Tse Tung possesses vision and foresight, and his mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. He is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Tse Tung is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and he is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. He is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Mao to deal with details and particulars. Mao Tse Tung has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to him.
Mao Tse Tung has a good understanding of group trends, politics, mass movements, and community affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something Tse Tung does well and is likely to be involved with. Mao collaborates well in group efforts and is likely to be part of a successful team or large organization.
Mao Tse Tung would be an excellent teacher or counselor for he listens sympathetically and encourages others to express their inner thoughts and feelings. People trust and confide in Mao, and he is able to read between the lines and sense what their feelings are as well as what they are saying. Tse Tung works well with and understands women as well as the emotional, feminine side of life. He is articulate on personal (rather than factual or technical) subjects. Keeping a diary or journal would be satisfying for Tse Tung. Mao Tse Tung also has a talent for learning languages.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Tse Tung sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not Tse Tung's forte. At times he is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Mao Tse Tung apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Mao Tse Tung is prone to is that he projects his fantasies, wishes and dreams onto other people or external circumstances and simply fails to see what is actually at stake.
He is physically vigorous and always ready for action. A quick thinker, Mao Tse Tung is able to make swift decisions and may unknowingly create for himself opportunities to take control over others or to be a leader.
Tse Tung's attitude toward associations could be somewhat critical and he may be emotionally nervous when he is around others. But he has a need to exchange ideas with others and the way Mao Tse Tung reacts to others is important to him.
