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 Doris Day, 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 Day at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Doris Day 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. Doris often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Day can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Doris Day is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Doris Day as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Doris Day uses her mind to organize, classify, and bring order to her environment. She is interested in the refinement of her technical skills and abilities and is a stickler for details. Organizational skills, training others in her area of expertise, or work involving teaching and communications are highly probable for Day.
She is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Day's interest. Her interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Doris Day is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. Day could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Doris Day has a particular interest in the past. She is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Doris Day is nostalgic and she loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss her own experiences and feelings. Doris likes to read biographies and memoirs, and she probably keeps a diary or journal herself. Doris Day also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Doris Day often finds it hard not to speak out.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Day tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Doris Day could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. She is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Doris Day has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
She is impatient, a bit nervous and easily irritated. Although she is sensitive to criticism, Day can also be insensitive to the feelings of others. Doris Day must consciously cultivate self-control in order to handle her somewhat quick temper.
