mental interests and abilities
One of Vladimir's greatest assets is his ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, Vladimir Putin works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. He is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. Vladimir Putin insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. His sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. Vladimir Putin also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Vladimir does not speak up readily, even when he has a lot to say! Also, his mind tends to drift and Putin finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. His intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Vladimir Putin tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Vladimir Putin has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and he enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, he knows how to drive his point home. Vladimir Putin also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players is a suitable arena for Putin.
His mind is serious and deep, and Vladimir Putin will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until he has thoroughly considered and studied it. Vladimir has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Vladimir Putin has an aptitude for research or doing mental work that requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail and a methodical approach. He is conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, Vladimir Putin is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Putin will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Vladimir Putin's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines his mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Vladimir Putin incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
He is an original thinker, capable of unique discoveries and innovations, but he tends to scatter his energies in too many directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions. Vladimir Putin grasps ideas very quickly and becomes impatient with duller or more conservative minds. A fast-moving, mentally stimulating, and unpredictable atmosphere suits Vladimir quite well, even though he may complain about the stress and the crazy pace. Vladimir Putin has a technical bent and is interested in the newest scientific theories and findings, electronics, computers, etc.
Even though Putin can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), he also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Vladimir could accurately articulate the images and fantasies he has, he could forcefully convince others of his own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Vladimir Putin may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Putin's thinking.
Although Vladimir Putin's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Putin can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
His mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and Vladimir Putin is often unable to express his thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art or music better express Putin's ideas. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry Vladimir into strange and beautiful worlds, and he could foster the ability to transcribe some of his perceptions so as to share them with others, for example, by writing fantasy, fiction, lyrics or poetry. Putin is sensitive to nuances and possesses intuitive or psychic gifts, but he may become confused between imagination and true perception. Vladimir Putin has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty focusing his attention on practical or mundane activities. Vladimir Putin is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
His mind is characterized by a penetrating depth and thoroughness. Vladimir Putin ferrets out the facts, and especially enjoys a problem if there is an element of mystery, darkness, or the forbidden. Generally, Putin does not shy away from the truth, no matter how unpleasant it is.
Putin approaches his environment positively, but tends to be a bit critical towards others. He is inclined to seek recognition from his friends and associates and usually is able to get it. Vladimir Putin also enjoys keeping in contact with young people.
Vladimir has the ability to think and act efficiently and he seems to perceive what is unspoken or hidden. Vladimir Putin goes about realizing his plans in a fanatical way and has a tendency to over-work his nervous system.
He is self-assured and confident and has the necessary energy to carry out his objectives. Vladimir Putin makes his plans with sufficient forethought and always keeps in mind to proceed according to the currently prevailing regulations.
