Eagle Eye Profile: President Theodore Roosevelt
“President Roosevelt speaks as he writes, and what he writes no one can misunderstand.”
President Theodore Roosevelt preferred to perceive the world through the five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, which explains in part why he was an avid outdoorsman and a concrete communicator. Eagle eyes (sensing types), which account for about 70 percent of the population, are practical and realistic, interested in the here and now, and more factual than conceptual. They learn by familiarization, seek physical sensation, and trust experience.

|Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground… The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits… Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far. — Theodore Roosevelt||Practical and Realistic|
|Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster… Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time. — Theodore Roosevelt||Interested in the Here and Now|
|An avid student of the natural world, young Roosevelt spent long hours studying animal anatomy, behavior, and habitats, compiling notebooks and sketches of what he saw, and reading scientific texts. His special interest was birds. By the time he was in his teens, Roosevelt was able to identify most species in the northeastern U.S. by their song, flight pattern, courtship behavior, and plumage.

|Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind. — Theodore Roosevelt||More Factual than Conceptual|
|Theodore Roosevelt was a passionate hunter. He loved the thrill of tracking and chasing game, the skill in marksmanship, the careful and deliberate recording of his observations about each hunt, the demanding—if smelly—preservation of specimens, and the pleasure of capturing in rich and vibrant language this ephemeral experience so that he could share it with the world. theodoreroosevelt.org||Seek Physical Sensation|
|The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything. — Theodore Roosevelt||Trust Experience|
