Though Peter Cushing 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 Cushing 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. Cushing grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Peter Cushing craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Peter Cushing 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 Cushing.
Peter Cushing 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 Cushing 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 Cushing 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 Cushing 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.
Cushing is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Peter Cushing 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.
Peter Cushing has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Peter likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Peter Cushing that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Cushing can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Cushing, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Peter Cushing craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Peter Cushing possesses inventive and creative genius.
His vitality is not up to par and his will-power a bit weak, making Peter Cushing vulnerable to swindle or deceit. His inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Cushing into dubious schemes. Peter should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Peter Cushing is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
