Rodriguez will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Robert Rodriguez's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Robert Rodriguez incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
He is an original thinker, capable of unique discoveries and innovations, but he tends to scatter his energies in too many directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions. Robert Rodriguez grasps ideas very quickly and becomes impatient with duller or more conservative minds. A fast-moving, mentally stimulating, and unpredictable atmosphere suits Robert quite well, even though he may complain about the stress and the crazy pace. Robert Rodriguez has a technical bent and is interested in the newest scientific theories and findings, electronics, computers, etc.
Even though Rodriguez 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: Robert could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Robert Rodriguez may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Rodriguez's thinking.
Although Robert Rodriguez's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Rodriguez 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.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Robert Rodriguez, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Robert 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. Robert Rodriguez 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.
He is somewhat restless and in constant search for variety and change. Cautious in one way and optimistic in another, Robert Rodriguez frequently changes his mind and his philosophy of life. He may prefer mental work and is likely to choose a scientific field.
