Though Shane West 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 Shane mentally sharp, articulate and clever.
Shane West 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. West grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Shane West craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Shane West 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 Shane 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 West.
Shane West 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 Shane had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Shane West 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.
Shane West 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 Shane West 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. Shane 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.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to West. Shane West has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Shane West may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Shane West tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Shane West has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Shane West is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Shane West, 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 Shane West becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Shane.
