He is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once his curiosity has been satisfied.

Mentally restless, he may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel, and variety.

Even though Pio of Pietrelcina can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind.

The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Pio of Pietrelcina's thinking.
His mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and Padre Pio is often unable to express his thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art, or music better express his ideas.

Padre Pio has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty concentrating his attention on practical or mundane activities. He is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
