mental interests and abilities
Bo Derek 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. The study of philosophy, religion, politics, or education is of interest to Derek, and she is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. She is not inclined to focus on any one practical, concrete area; Bo finds it irksome to deal with details and particulars. Bo Derek has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising, and promotion would be good areas for her also.
The mysterious and the unknown fascinate Bo Derek and she may investigate the supernatural or something that is hidden or taboo. Derek needs to know what is going on behind the scenes. She is also deeply curious about or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.
Often Bo's emotions and her logic are out of sync with one another. What Bo Derek feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from her conscious thoughts. Thus she may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up her mind. Bo Derek functions best when she takes time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Bo Derek studies her dreams and their messages she will be surprised to discover how often her true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from her conscious stance.
Putting her feelings into words does not come very easily, and Bo Derek may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate on subjects other than the purely factual or intellectual. However, finding an outlet through writing or telling her feelings would be very gratifying for Derek.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Bo Derek is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Derek combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Bo has an introverted frame of mind and she tends to dissect or deeply analyze her own and other people's inner lives and experiences.
Her mind is serious and deep, and Bo Derek will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until she has thoroughly considered and studied it. Bo has excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Bo Derek has an aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. She is conservative and something of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, Bo Derek is rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Derek will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. Above, Bo Derek's thinking is depicted as careful, conservative, methodical, and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information characterizes her mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Bo Derek incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired, inventive and the deductive, ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Independent and freethinking, Bo Derek dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Bo insists on discovering her own truth. Bo Derek does well in a rather unstructured environment that allows her to make her own decisions and to respond to the needs of the moment, rather than following a routine, standardized way of doing things. She is also suited to a fast-paced atmosphere, which Derek finds exciting and stimulating. Her mind functions in an intuitive, nonlinear fashion and sudden insights and flashes of inspiration often come to her "out of the blue". Bo has an aptitude for science and new technologies especially interest her. Bo Derek also has a penchant for astrology or other esoteric sciences.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Derek is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Bo Derek has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and deep and Bo Derek has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting, or private investigation. She is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" regarding the inner motivations and intentions of others. She is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Derek is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
Bo Derek forms her own conclusion about things and may have some difficulty in exchanging her thoughts and ideas with others, although they regard her ideas as having a good foundation. Most of her conversations tend to have a serious overtone.
Although she is very perceptive and intuitive, she does not trust herself and a bit insecure, Derek tends to accept other people's influence in her thinking. Bo Derek seems to take on the feelings of those in her relationships and should surround herself with positive companions.
