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 Benazir. 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, Benazir Bhutto 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. Bhutto enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
She is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviews, discussions, debates, counseling, negotiations, providing and obtaining feedback, and sharing information. Benazir Bhutto is drawn to intelligent and verbal people with whom she can communicate and from whom she can learn. Benazir 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 Bhutto's interest. Her interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Benazir Bhutto 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. Bhutto could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Benazir Bhutto 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.).
Benazir Bhutto is nostalgic and she loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss her own experiences and feelings. Benazir likes to read biographies and memoirs, and she probably keeps a diary or journal herself. Benazir Bhutto also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Benazir Bhutto is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Bhutto combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Benazir 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.
Benazir Bhutto has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to her careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Benazir Bhutto has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Bhutto can get entirely wrapped up in her own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. She is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in her work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, she may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. She prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Benazir Bhutto may also be distrustful or fearful of anything she cannot understand with her rational mind. She is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
Bhutto will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Benazir Bhutto's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines her mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Benazir Bhutto incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
An independent and original thinker, Benazir is excited by new ideas, discoveries, and innovations. Her mind functions in an intuitive, nonlinear fashion and sudden insights and ideas often come to her "out of the blue". Benazir Bhutto grasps ideas very quickly and often becomes impatient with those who are slower or more cautious than he. More conservative minds deem her rather eccentric and unusual in her interests. Benazir Bhutto does well in an open, unpredictable atmosphere where flexibility and quick responses are needed. Benazir Bhutto has an aptitude for science, mathematics, electronics or astrology.
Although Benazir Bhutto's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Bhutto 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.
Her mind is highly imaginative and creative and she possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Benazir Bhutto enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "her own little world" a good deal. She perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Benazir Bhutto has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Benazir Bhutto must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and her imagination. Learning to discipline and focus her mind is necessary if Bhutto wishes to use all of her creative potential. Otherwise, Benazir Bhutto could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Benazir Bhutto because she often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express her experiences and perceptions. Also, Benazir may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Bhutto knows what she wants to accomplish and has a tendency to strive toward a superior intellect. She is prudent and a convincing speaker with the ability to influence others. But Benazir Bhutto pushes herself tirelessly and tends to overstrain her nerves.
