mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, he is always eager to express his ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Willie has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, he is interested in another new idea or project. Willie Nelson never seems to have enough time to do everything he wants. He is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things he believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if he honestly does not. He may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Willie has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Willie Nelson is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest Nelson. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of his.
He is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Nelson's interest. His interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Willie Nelson is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. Nelson could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Willie Nelson has a particular interest in the past. He is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Willie Nelson is nostalgic and he loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss his own experiences and feelings. Willie likes to read biographies and memoirs, and he probably keeps a diary or journal himself. Willie Nelson also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Willie Nelson often seesaws between what his conscious reasoning tells him versus a belief in things which seem to defy logic. Willie has a penchant for thinking big and being able to visualize the future, but he must beware of grandiose schemes and exaggerated claims. Oftentimes the most "far out" theories or speculative ideas seem perfectly plausible to Willie Nelson, but it would be wise to test these ideas before Willie invests too much into them.
Also, Willie Nelson is prone to severe wanderlust at times, so he should try to see as much of the world as he can.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Willie Nelson is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Nelson combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Willie has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze his own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Nelson'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 Willie Nelson may seesaw between his optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and his skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Willie Nelson has a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical, or dry. He could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are his forte. In speech Willie Nelson tends to be factual and to the point.
