mental interests and abilities
Prince has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. He is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once his curiosity has been satisfied. Prince likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not his strong points. Mentally restless, he may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Prince has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. He also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Prince Nelson. His ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of his greatest strengths.
He is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviews, discussions, debates, counseling, negotiations, providing and obtaining feedback, and sharing information. Prince is drawn to intelligent and verbal people with whom he can communicate and from whom he can learn. Prince loves to have an audience to hear his ideas, and he also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
He is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Prince Nelson's interest. His interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Prince is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. Prince Nelson could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Prince has a particular interest in the past. He is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Prince is nostalgic and he loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss his own experiences and feelings. Prince likes to read biographies and memoirs, and he probably keeps a diary or journal himself. Prince also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
His desire to make a point sometime overrides his receptivity to others' views. He can be a good listener, but Prince often finds it hard not to speak out.
Prince 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. Prince 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 Prince Nelson.
Even though Prince Nelson 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: Prince could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Prince may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Prince Nelson's thinking.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Prince, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Prince also tends to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any true relevance or validity. Prince should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Prince is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though he rarely reveals his own. Prince has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. His mind is penetrating and Prince has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. He is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. He is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Prince Nelson is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of his conviction.
Prince wants to be himself and he has a need to assert his individuality. Acting independently, he wants to do things immediately. There is a nervous energy about Prince that could lead to accidents, if he neglects to be careful.
His way of thinking is greatly influenced by the conditions in his environment. In general, Prince prefers to be alone and away from the stress in his surroundings, for his daily contact with others always seems to bring some kind of trouble in one way or another.
