mental interests and abilities
Her mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Bettie Page dislikes being rushed or forced into give an opinion before she has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. She is also difficult to sway once her mind is made up.
Though slower at grasping new concepts or learning new skills, she is patient and persevering and in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever she sets her mind to for she is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Bettie Page succeeds, not so much because of her intellectual brilliance, but because she has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Bettie has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Her mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters and Bettie Page is interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. She is very interested in finance, economics and moneymaking strategies.
Bettie Page has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Page likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Bettie Page naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of her theories or insights are not really Page's concern. Her "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Page. She is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When she is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Bettie Page to keep it to herself. She has a bit of the evangelist in her.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Page'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 Bettie Page may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Bettie Page 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 Page 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 Bettie's thinking too much.
Page will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Bettie Page'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! Bettie Page incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Her intellectual interests tend to be offbeat or unusual. Anything "alternative", innovative, experimental, creatively inspired or new is right up Page's alley. Bettie Page may not have the patience to study these things in depth, but she has an instinctive grasp of them. The esoteric sciences like astrology, numerology, and the like are subjects Bettie could pick up quite easily.
Although Bettie Page's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Page 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, Bettie Page 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 Bettie Page has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Bettie Page must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and her imagination. Learning to discipline and focus her mind is necessary if Page wishes to use all of her creative potential. Otherwise, Bettie Page could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Bettie Page because she often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express her experiences and perceptions. Also, Bettie may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Bettie has strong feelings of love and an emotional need to talk about love relationships problems. Beauty also is important for her emotional contentment and Bettie Page dresses very tastefully. She is kind and popular and gives complements from the bottom of her heart.
Her sexuality probably developed early in life and problems of love relationships could be on her mind a lot. Bettie Page may adopt a somewhat pompous and flirtatious way of speech and the subject "sex" may come up repeatedly during the course of her conversations.
She is likely to concentrate on herself a lot and tends to have melancholic thoughts, at times even brooding over something. Preferring to be alone, Bettie Page always makes sure to have her own space. Very self-reliant, she has a need to work by herself.
