mental interests and abilities
Ally has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. She is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once her curiosity has been satisfied. Ally likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not her strong points. Mentally restless, she may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Ally Sheedy has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. She also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Sheedy. Her ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of her greatest strengths.
Ally does not speak up readily, even when she has a lot to say! Also, her mind tends to drift and Sheedy finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. Her intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Ally Sheedy tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Ally Sheedy has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. She is not a specialist for she seeks a broad overview; she wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest her.
She also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to her success in the business world. However, Sheedy's optimism and grand vision can also get her into trouble. Ally Sheedy sometimes promises more than she can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt her later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Sheedy's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Ally Sheedy may travel extensively in her work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for her.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Sheedy'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 Ally Sheedy may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Ally Sheedy possesses excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Sheedy 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. Ally Sheedy 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 Ally Sheedy's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Sheedy 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 Ally Sheedy, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Ally 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. Ally Sheedy should try to critically test out her ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character she respects, to use as a sounding board.
