Though Michael Clarke seems rather cautious and conservative (as discussed in the previous chapter), he has a much more playful, humorous side as well. Moreover, the combination of his attention to detail and cautious, circumspect approach to life, coupled with his youthful curiosity and quick mind makes Michael mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Michael Clarke is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Clarke grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Michael Clarke craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Michael Clarke to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Michael toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Clarke.
Michael Clarke lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Michael had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Michael Clarke has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Michael Clarke also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Michael Clarke to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Michael has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Clarke.
Michael Clarke has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Michael Clarke tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Michael Clarke has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Michael Clarke insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Michael needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Michael Clarke undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Clarke has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Michael is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Michael Clarke is a force to be reckoned with.
