mental interests and abilities
Shane 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. Shane 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.
Shane West 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 West. His ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of his greatest strengths.
Shane West thinks a great deal about his career, his reputation and public image, and the way he makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or some other form of communication is likely to be an important aspect of Shane West's work.
Shane has a knack for establishing a rapport and communicating with people, is blessed with great interpersonal skills, and is adept at dealing with the public. Shane West communicates concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know Shane well. West fosters close relationships with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel that Shane West understands them.
His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Shane West grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as West tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them. His mind may race so quickly that it is hard for Shane West to sit still for any length of time. Shane has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at his best. Shane West should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
His mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. West sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not West's forte. At times he is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Shane West apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Shane West is prone to is that he projects his fantasies, wishes and dreams onto other people or external circumstances and simply fails to see what is actually at stake.
His mind is deep and penetrating and he is interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper recesses of the human psyche. Shane West possesses an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. Shane West is also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
