Even though he is imaginative and emotional (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a very sharp, quick mind, as discussed below. Peter Yarrow thinks and reasons - as well as feels and empathizes - with both his heart and his head to make his way in life.
Peter Yarrow 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. Yarrow grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Peter Yarrow craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Peter Yarrow 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 Yarrow.
Peter Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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 Yarrow 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.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Peter Yarrow, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Yarrow is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Peter enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Peter Yarrow's thinking is influenced by his feelings, he is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. He is in control of his feelings and is able to express them rationally.
Peter Yarrow is a restless spirit, a bit self-willed, and he has a tendency to overstrain his nervous system. He is easily aroused and quick to explode when things do not meet his expectations. He is highly individualistic, resourceful and determined.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Peter Yarrow may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
