mental interests and abilities
He is a progressive thinker and he is open and receptive to new technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the latest discoveries in any field. Mikhail Gorbachev has high expectations and a profound belief that mankind's problems can be solved through the use of man's creative intelligence and inventive mind. Mikhail has no patience for those whose conservative, unimaginative outlook limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better future. Gorbachev also likes to keep abreast of current developments in world affairs, for he instinctively knows that what happens in one part of the world affects everyone. Mikhail Gorbachev has a strong humanitarian drive. Practically speaking, Mikhail Gorbachev has an aptitude for organization and enjoys being involved in cooperative endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
Gorbachev enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge him intellectually. Mikhail Gorbachev 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.
Mikhail Gorbachev tends to seesaw between holding his tongue and lashing out. This verbal self-control seems to create internal tension, so that when Gorbachev finally does speak his mind, there is quite a bit of resentment or energy behind his words. Learning to state an opinion without making it an attack is important. When out of balance, Mikhail Gorbachev is prone to frequent, irritating little accidents such as cutting his fingers or getting burned.
Even though Gorbachev can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Mikhail could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Mikhail Gorbachev may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Gorbachev's thinking.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Gorbachev 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 Gorbachev'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, Mikhail Gorbachev apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Mikhail Gorbachev 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.
Mikhail Gorbachev has a tendency to show other people that he is someone to be reckoned with. He is inclined to be irritable, easily angered, and quick to take offense. Mikhail Gorbachev may also have a sharp tongue and he is likely to have frequent quarrels or disputes in his relationships.
