mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, she is always eager to express her ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Alexandrine has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, she is interested in another new idea or project. Alexandrine Zola never seems to have enough time to do everything she wants. She is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things she believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if she honestly does not. She may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Alexandrine Zola has a good understanding of group trends, politics, mass movements and community affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something Zola does well and is likely to be involved with. Alexandrine is an accomplished team player and is likely to be part of a successful group or large organization.
She is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Zola's interest. Her interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Alexandrine Zola 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.

Alexandrine Zola has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Zola likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Alexandrine Zola naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of her theories or insights are not really Zola's concern. Her "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Zola. She is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When she is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Alexandrine Zola to keep it to herself. She has a bit of the evangelist in her.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Alexandrine Zola is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Zola combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Alexandrine has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze her 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), Zola's mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Alexandrine Zola may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Alexandrine Zola possesses excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Zola gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion and is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. She is well-suited to any work that requires organized thinking, precision and a methodical approach. She enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive or technical. Alexandrine Zola tends to become a specialist in a given field of knowledge and to become engrossed in all of the small details involved, sometimes unaware that only few people share her particular interest, especially to the extent that she does.
Although Alexandrine Zola's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Zola 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.
Imaginative, intuitive, and nonlinear in her thinking, Alexandrine Zola has a gift for writing poetry, fiction, or fantasy. Alexandrine also has a natural openness to the spiritual, intangible side of life and could write or speak on these subjects. She could also foster an innate clairvoyant tendency in herself quite easily.
