mental interests and abilities
Willis Carrier possesses vision and foresight, and his mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. He is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Carrier is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and he is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. He is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Willis to deal with details and particulars. Willis Carrier has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to him.

Keeping a diary or journal would be satisfying for Carrier. Willis Carrier also has a talent for learning languages.
Although he is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Willis Carrier is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Carrier combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Willis 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.
Willis Carrier has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to his careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Willis Carrier has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Carrier can get entirely wrapped up in his own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. He is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in his work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, he may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. He prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Willis Carrier may also be distrustful or fearful of anything he cannot understand with his rational mind. He is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
Although Willis Carrier's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Carrier 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.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Willis Carrier, and he has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in his dealings with others as he possibly can. Willis tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Willis Carrier should try to critically test out his ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character he respects, to use as a sounding board.
