Though Rubens Barrichello 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 Rubens mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Rubens Barrichello 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. Barrichello grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Rubens Barrichello craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Rubens Barrichello 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 Rubens 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 Barrichello.
Rubens Barrichello 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 Rubens had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Rubens Barrichello 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.
Rubens Barrichello 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 Rubens Barrichello 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. Rubens 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.
Barrichello is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Rubens Barrichello 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.
Rubens Barrichello 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. Rubens likes to be in control of himself.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Rubens Barrichello also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Rubens Barrichello is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Rubens Barrichello, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Rubens Barrichello becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Rubens.
Rubens Barrichello deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Rubens has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Rubens likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
