Although Salman Rushdie has a sensible, realistic outlook on life and he is able to dedicate himself wholeheartedly to his interests (as described on the previous page), he is also very adaptable, flexible, and varied. Salman Rushdie appears more conservative and conventional than he is. From Rushdie's appearance, others may not realize that he is familiar with a wide range of life styles and he has varied tastes. Salman Rushdie is able to put ideas into practical action and he is likely to be successful in any field that requires good communication skills and presentation of ideas.
Salman Rushdie 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. Rushdie grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he wants to go on to something else. Salman Rushdie craves frequent change, variety, meeting new situations and people.
It may be hard for Salman Rushdie to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe to limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Salman into many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something he does well, is real drudgery for Rushdie.
Salman Rushdie 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 Salman had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Salman Rushdie 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 to 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.
Salman Rushdie also has a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Salman Rushdie 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 his language skills to communicate something meaningful, to teach, inspire, or bring people together. Salman 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.
Ownership gives Salman Rushdie a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Salman also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
The above description of Salman Rushdie is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life.

Innovative, original, unorthodox, and unconventional, he identifies with the role of rebel, reformer, or iconoclast. Salman Rushdie insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt himself to others' needs and wishes. Salman needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. Often he feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside the mainstream of society.
Salman Rushdie has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
