Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, Annie Besant works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. She is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. Annie Besant insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. Her sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. Annie Besant also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
She is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving feedback, and sharing information. Annie Besant is drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom she can communicate and from whom she can learn. Annie loves to have an audience to hear her ideas, and she also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
She is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Besant's interest. Her interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Annie Besant 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. Besant could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Annie Besant has a particular interest in the past. She is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Annie Besant is nostalgic and she loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss her own experiences and feelings. Annie likes to read biographies and memoirs, and she probably keeps a diary or journal herself. Annie Besant also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.

Although her tact was commented on above, Annie Besant can also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way she communicates, as mentioned below.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Annie Besant often finds it hard not to speak out.
Annie Besant tends to seesaw between holding her tongue and lashing out. This verbal self-control seems to create internal tension, so that when Besant finally does speak her mind, there is quite a bit of resentment or energy behind her words. Learning to state an opinion without making it an attack is important. When out of balance, Annie Besant is prone to frequent, irritating little accidents such as cutting her fingers or getting burned.
Annie Besant 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, Besant's optimism and grand vision can also get her into trouble. Annie Besant 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 Besant's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Annie Besant may travel extensively in her work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for her.
Annie Besant has a brilliant, inventive mind, and Besant's sudden flashes of insight and clear perception enable her to grasp concepts very quickly. At times Besant's mind flits from one subject to the next so rapidly that Annie Besant cannot thoroughly digest any of them. Annie gets bored and restless, and intellectually rebels against too much tedium. She may be abrupt and impatient with people who plan and plod along, because Annie Besant likes to be open to inspiration and spontaneous. Besant could invent or discover something truly original, unique or unheard of.
Annie Besant has a strong desire to dominate people's minds and would make an excellent hypnotist. Her own personal vibration seems to influence people and possibly could change their lives. It is important to use this power that Annie Besant seems to have for the general good.
