mental interests and abilities
He is an exacting perfectionist with a clear, logical, analytical mind and an aptitude for work that requires meticulous attention to detail and efficient organization. Well grounded and pragmatic, O'Toole tends to develop specialized skills and technical expertise in a practical field. Knowledge, ideas and theories do not really interest Peter O'Toole unless they are useful in a tangible way. He is inclined to analyze, measure, and dissect everything and to miss nuances and subtle shades of feeling and meaning in the process. His strengths lie in his precise thinking, careful craftsmanship and mastery of technical skills. Peter O'Toole tends to be very good at what he does and critical of others' work if it does not meet his high standards.
O'Toole enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge him intellectually. Peter O'Toole likes to show off his verbal or intellectual skills and to use his mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other manifestation of his creative intelligence appeal to him.
Peter O'Toole appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design and beauty. He could develop considerable technical skills as an artist, designer, craftsman or creative writer. O'Toole could also sell objects of beauty such as artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Peter O'Toole 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 asset when working with people one-on-one.
Although his tact was commented on above, Peter O'Toole can also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way he communicates, as mentioned below.
Peter O'Toole has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and he enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, he knows how to drive his point home. Peter O'Toole also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between players is a suitable arena for O'Toole.
He enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. O'Toole is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, he prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components. Peter O'Toole has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Peter O'Toole also has a talent for teaching and sharing his knowledge, and as a teacher, Peter presents himself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
He may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Peter O'Toole excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but he is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing his ideas concretely. Peter O'Toole should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in his life and work.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), O'Toole's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Peter O'Toole may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Peter O'Toole has a deep, serious side to him and when out of balance, he tends to be pessimistic, cynical and overly rigid or judgmental in this thinking. These are tendencies O'Toole may have to work on counteracting, 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 his mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Peter's thinking too much.
Even though O'Toole 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: Peter could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Peter O'Toole may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of O'Toole's thinking.
Although Peter O'Toole's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times O'Toole 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 does not function in a linear, logical manner and Peter O'Toole is often unable to express his thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art or music better express O'Toole's ideas. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry Peter into strange and beautiful worlds, and he could foster the ability to transcribe some of his perceptions so as to share them with others, for example, by writing fantasy, fiction, lyrics or poetry. O'Toole is sensitive to nuances and possesses intuitive or psychic gifts, but he may become confused between imagination and true perception. Peter O'Toole has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty focusing his attention on practical or mundane activities. Peter O'Toole is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
Peter O'Toole 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.
