Though Peter Holm 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 Peter mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Peter Holm 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. Holm grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Peter Holm craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Peter Holm 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 Peter 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 Holm.
Peter Holm 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 Peter had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Peter Holm 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.
Peter Holm 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 Peter Holm 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. Peter 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.
Holm is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Peter Holm is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Holm occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Peter Holm also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Peter Holm insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Peter 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.
Holm always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Peter Holm also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
