Teddy has mechanical ability and works well with his hands. Roosevelt could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity.Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests him as well. Theodore Roosevelt also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that he relates better to them than to people! Theodore Roosevelt tends to become narrowly focused on his own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Roosevelt enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge him intellectually. Theodore Roosevelt likes to show off his verbal or intellectual skills and to use his mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other display of his creative intelligence appeal to him.
His mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Theodore Roosevelt grasps new concepts very readily. However, his retention may be poor, as Roosevelt 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 Theodore Roosevelt to sit still for any length of time. Teddy has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at his best. Theodore Roosevelt should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
Theodore Roosevelt has very strong opinions and may be considered fanatical, extreme, dogmatic or one-sided in his views. Forcing his "truth" onto other people, playing intellectual power games with them or seeking to manipulate their thinking processes could lead to a great deal of conflict and opposition in his life and relationships. He may also be keenly aware of the ways in which the media, popular artists and advertising manipulate and shape our thoughts, for Teddy can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances. Theodore Roosevelt has an intense way of communicating, and he may unintentionally come across as a threatening force.
