mental interests and abilities
She is more of a poet than a rational scientist, for her mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Barbara Hershey, and she is also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating her thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for Hershey at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Barbara Hershey as a child, and she probably daydreamed a good deal as well. She is intuitive and able to sense the thoughts and feelings of others even before they say anything to her. Barbara often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Hershey can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Barbara Hershey is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Barbara Hershey as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Barbara Hershey has a good understanding of group trends, politics, mass movements, and community affairs. Sharing ideas with groups of people is something Hershey does well and is likely to be involved with. Barbara collaborates well in group efforts and is likely to be part of a successful team or large organization.
Intellectually, she is very competitive, argumentative sharp, and incisive. Barbara Hershey starts arguments and may stir up animosity with her impulsiveness and tactlessness. Hershey always likes to have the last word, and others often feel that she does not really listen to what they are attempting to communicate; so while she may win the battle (especially if it is a battle of wits), she may well lose the war. In other words, Hershey's relationships in all arenas suffer tremendously from Hershey's aggressive way of getting her point across and her inability to take in what others are saying. Learning techniques to calm Hershey's nervous system and relax her mind would be extremely beneficial for her.
