mental interests and abilities
She is more of a poet than a rational scientist, for her mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Devon Michaels, and she is also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating her thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for Michaels at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Devon Michaels as a child, and she probably daydreamed a good deal as well. She is intuitive and able to sense the thoughts and feelings of others even before they say anything to her. Devon often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Michaels can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Devon Michaels is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Devon Michaels as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Devon has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Devon Michaels 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 Michaels. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Devon Michaels has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and she enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, she knows how to drive her point home. Devon Michaels also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between players is a suitable arena for Michaels.
Devon has an ongoing interest in learning and expanding her mental horizons. She enjoys traveling, philosophical discussions and exchanging ideas with those who have different experiences and viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, she is well-suited to law, consulting, diplomatic relations, as well as business. Devon Michaels learns quickly, and can pick up on a new idea or concept with relative ease.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Michaels' mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Devon Michaels may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Devon Michaels has a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical or dry. She could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are her forte. In speech Devon Michaels tends to be factual and to the point.
Michaels will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Devon Michaels' 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! Devon Michaels incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Her mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Devon Michaels grasps new concepts very readily. However, her retention may be poor, as Michaels tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them. Her mind may race so quickly that it is hard for Devon Michaels to sit still for any length of time. Devon has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at her best. Devon Michaels should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
Even though Michaels can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), she also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Devon could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Devon Michaels may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Michaels' thinking.
Although Devon Michaels' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Michaels 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, Devon Michaels 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 Devon Michaels has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Devon Michaels must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and her imagination. Learning to discipline and focus her mind is necessary if Michaels wishes to use all of her creative potential. Otherwise, Devon Michaels could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Devon Michaels because she often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express her experiences and perceptions. Also, Devon may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
