mental interests and abilities
She is an exacting perfectionist with a clear, logical, analytical mind and an aptitude for work that requires meticulous attention to detail and efficient organization. Well grounded and pragmatic, Bow tends to develop specialized skills and technical expertise in a practical field. Knowledge, ideas and theories do not really interest Clara Bow unless they are useful in a tangible way. She is inclined to analyze, measure, and dissect everything and to miss nuances and subtle shades of feeling and meaning in the process. Her strengths lie in her precise thinking, careful craftsmanship and mastery of technical skills. Clara Bow tends to be very good at what she does and critical of others' work if it does not meet her high standards.
She is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving feedback, and sharing information. Clara Bow is drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom she can communicate and from whom she can learn. Clara loves to have an audience to hear her ideas, and she also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
Clara Bow has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. She is not a specialist for she seeks a broad overview; she wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest her.
She also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to her success in the business world. However, Bow's optimism and grand vision can also get her into trouble. Clara Bow sometimes promises more than she can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt her later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Bow's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Clara Bow may travel extensively in her work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for her.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Bow'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 Clara Bow may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Clara Bow scrutinizes, analyzes, dissects and critically assesses ideas before accepting them. She may seem judgmental, serious and unreceptive to others' thoughts, particularly if they are frivolous or poorly thought out. She prefers substantial conversation to superficial, meaningless banter. Clara Bow generally thinks carefully and thoroughly before speaking and she wishes that others would do the same! Communication problems, like extreme reticence, stuttering or difficulties with interpersonal relationships may well be challenges for her.
Bow will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Clara Bow'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! Clara Bow 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, Clara Bow dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Clara insists on discovering her own truth. Clara Bow 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 Bow 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". Clara has an aptitude for science and new technologies are of particular interest to her. Clara Bow also has a penchant for astrology or other esoteric sciences.
