mental interests and abilities
She is highly interested in inner, subjective and personal issues, and her thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences and prejudices, than on reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to Angela. She is empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for she is a sensitive listener and deeply interested in people's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, Angela Merkel is drawn to education, art, poetry, music or mythology. She is not particularly confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share her thoughts in small, intimate groups. Merkel enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Angela has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Angela Merkel is the perpetual student who will be involved in higher education, philosophy or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing or communication are also areas of interest to Merkel. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Angela's emotions and logic are often out of sync. What Angela Merkel feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from her conscious thoughts. Thus she may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up her mind. Angela Merkel functions best when she takes the time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, thereby utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Angela Merkel studies her dreams and their messages she will be surprised to discover how often her true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from her conscious stance.
Putting her feelings into words does not come very easily, and Angela Merkel may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate subjects other than those that are purely factual or intellectual in nature. However, finding an outlet through writing about or describing her feelings would be very gratifying for Merkel.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Merkel is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, she prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components. Angela Merkel has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Angela Merkel also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Angela presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Angela Merkel excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas concretely. Angela Merkel should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
