mental interests and abilities
His mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Miles Davis dislikes being rushed or forced into give an opinion before he has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. He is also difficult to sway once his mind is made up.
Though slower at grasping new concepts or learning new skills, he is patient and persevering and in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever he sets his mind to for he is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Miles Davis succeeds, not so much because of his intellectual brilliance, but because he has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Miles has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Miles does not speak up readily, even when he has a lot to say! Also, his mind tends to drift and Davis finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. His intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Miles Davis tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Miles Davis has very little interest in or knack for the technical or mechanical. Davis' forte lies in the human, personal side of life, people, psychology and life's inner workings. Miles Davis understands children and enjoys conversing with, counseling, listening to and learning about them. Davis also needs a variety of social and intellectual experiences on a regular basis, and becomes restless, nervous, and irritable if he cannot get out and about. Davis often needs to be mobile, to go for a walk or a drive, to regroup and to reestablish his emotional equilibrium. Miles Davis tends to dwell on the past, to ponder its significance, and at times, to long for it. Nostalgia and sentimentality substantially color Miles' thinking.
Miles Davis 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, Davis' optimism and grand vision can also get him into trouble. Miles Davis 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 Davis', especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Miles Davis may travel extensively in his work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for him.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Miles Davis is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Davis combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Miles 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.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Davis' mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Miles Davis may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Miles Davis scrutinizes, analyzes, dissects and critically assesses ideas before accepting them. He may seem judgmental, serious and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. He prefers substantial conversation to superficial, meaningless banter. Miles Davis generally thinks carefully and thoroughly before speaking and he wishes that others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering or difficulties with interpersonal relationships may well be challenges for him.
Although Miles Davis' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Davis can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
His mind is highly imaginative and creative and he possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Miles Davis enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "his own little world" a good deal. He perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Miles Davis has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Miles Davis must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and his imagination. Learning to discipline and focus his mind is necessary if Davis wishes to use all of his creative potential. Otherwise, Miles Davis could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Miles Davis because he often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express his experiences and perceptions. Also, Miles may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Miles Davis has good powers of perception and visualization and an intense imagination. Greatly inspired, he feels optimistic and hopeful for the future. He is likely to talk a lot about his plans and also is inclined to put on an act at times.
Intellectually oriented, Miles Davis comprehends things rapidly and is able to assess every situation just as quickly. At times Davis can also be impulsive and have a tendency to criticize others. He may enjoy riddles and the participation in quiz shows.
