In the book The Shining it's made clear to the readers that the Overlook Hotel wants to possess Danny Torrance so it can use his powerful telepathic power (his 'shine'). It does this by possessing his vulnerable father, Jack Torrance and using him as a puppet to hopefully kill Danny.
However, very early on in the book we meet Dick Hallorann, the head Chef of the Overlook. It's revealed that Dick also has the 'shine' and while he's not nearly as powerful as Danny, his shine is still nothing to scoff at.
My question is, if the Overlook Hotel is trying to become more powerful and can only do so by claiming people with the 'shine', why hasn't the hotel tried to claim Dick Hallorann?
