mental interests and abilities
His mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Richard Wagner dislikes being rushed or forced into give an opinion before he has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. He is also difficult to sway once his mind is made up.
Though slower at grasping new concepts or learning new skills, he is patient and persevering and in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever he sets his mind to for he is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Richard Wagner succeeds, not so much because of his intellectual brilliance, but because he has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Richard has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Richard does not speak up readily, even when he has a lot to say! Also, his mind tends to drift and Wagner finds it difficult to absorb very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. His intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Richard Wagner tends to depend upon this faculty when making decisions.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Wagner tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Richard Wagner could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. He is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Richard Wagner has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Richard Wagner has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. He is not a specialist for he seeks a broad overview; he wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest him.
He also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to his success in the business world. However, Wagner's optimism and grand vision can also get him into trouble. Richard Wagner sometimes promises more than he can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt him later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Wagner's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Richard Wagner may travel extensively in his work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for him.
His aspirations seem to be geared toward intellectual and spiritual lines and Wagner tends to base his friendships and other relationships on mutual inner understanding. Richard Wagner shares his thoughts and plans mostly with people who have the same interests that he has.
