mental interests and abilities
Dixie has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in her work. Dixie Lee seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Dixie has mechanical ability and works well with her hands. Lee could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests her as well. Dixie Lee also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that she relates better to them than to people! Dixie Lee tends to become narrowly focused on her own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Dixie has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Dixie Lee 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 Lee. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Dixie's emotions and logic are often out of sync. What Dixie Lee 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. Dixie Lee functions best when she takes the time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, thereby utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Dixie Lee 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 Dixie Lee may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate subjects other than those that are purely factual or intellectual in nature. However, finding an outlet through writing about or describing her feelings would be very gratifying for Lee.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Lee is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, she prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components. Dixie Lee has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Dixie Lee also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Dixie presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Dixie Lee excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas concretely. Dixie Lee should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Dixie Lee is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Lee combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Dixie has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze her own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Lee'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 Dixie Lee may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Dixie Lee 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. Dixie Lee 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.
Although she may intend to cooperate or collaborate in her relationships with others, Dixie Lee is inclined to use them to serve her own ends. A bit impatient and aggressive, she may be over eager to gain the advantage.
