mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, he is always eager to express his ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Pete has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, he is interested in another new idea or project. Pete Doherty never seems to have enough time to do everything he wants. He is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things he believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if he honestly does not. He may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Pete Doherty thinks a great deal about his career, his reputation and public image, and the way he makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Pete Doherty does.
Often Pete's emotions and his logic are out of sync with one another. What Pete Doherty feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from his conscious thoughts. Thus he may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up his mind. Pete Doherty functions best when he takes time to reflect, brood and incubate his ideas and decisions, utilizing his intuition and emotions as well as his reasoning. If Pete Doherty studies his dreams and their messages he will be surprised to discover how often his true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from his conscious stance.
Putting his feelings into words does not come very easily, and Pete Doherty may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate on subjects other than the purely factual or intellectual. However, finding an outlet through writing or telling his feelings would be very gratifying for Doherty.
Pete Doherty appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. He could develop great technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Doherty could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Pete has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and a talent for assuaging strain in the relationships of other people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are a great benefit to Doherty in any work with people on a one-to-one level.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Pete Doherty is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Doherty combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Pete 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.
Pete Doherty has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, he tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Doherty may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Pete's thinking too much.
