mental interests and abilities
Bette Midler possesses vision and foresight, and her mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. She is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Midler is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and she is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. She is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Bette to deal with details and particulars. Bette Midler has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to her.
Bette has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Bette Midler 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 Midler. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
She is mentally restless, intellectually thirsty and immensely curious. Bette Midler may study and travel widely in order to satisfy these urges and she is even happier if she shares her journeys with companions. Bette's gifts lie in her capacity for learning about the beliefs of a broad spectrum of people, making long-distance connections, opening up channels of communication and understanding, bringing people together from foreign lands, and promoting social and cultural exchange.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Midler'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 Bette Midler may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Bette Midler has a deep, serious side to her and when out of balance, she tends to be pessimistic, cynical and overly rigid or judgmental in this thinking. These are tendencies Midler may have to work on counteracting, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten her mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Bette's thinking too much.
