mental interests and abilities
Terry has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in his work. Terry Gilliam seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Terry has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Gilliam could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Terry Gilliam also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Terry Gilliam tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Inquisitive and communicative, Terry's mind seems to be "on" all of the time and he is forever gathering information and sharing ideas. His attention span may be rather brief; Gilliam has many and diverse interests and is easily distracted. Gilliam learns quickly, is eager to pass on what he is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Terry Gilliam has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Gilliam likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Terry Gilliam naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of his theories or insights are not really Gilliam's concern. His "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Gilliam. He is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When he is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Terry Gilliam to keep it to himself. He has a bit of the evangelist in him.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Gilliam's mind is clear and practical as well. His wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Terry Gilliam may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Terry Gilliam scrutinizes, analyzes, dissects and critically assesses ideas before accepting them. He may seem judgmental, serious and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. He prefers substantial conversation to superficial, meaningless banter. Terry Gilliam generally thinks carefully and thoroughly before speaking and he wishes that others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering or difficulties with interpersonal relationships may well be challenges for him.
Terry Gilliam has a charming disposition and loves to socialize and meet new people. Gilliam also likes to be surrounded by beautiful things and likes to talk to others about his views on love relationships problems as well as his views on beauty, fashion and art in general.
