mental interests and abilities
Édith Piaf 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. Piaf is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and she is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. She is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Édith to deal with details and particulars. Édith Piaf has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to her.
Her mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters, and Édith Piaf is interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. She is very interested in finance, economics, and moneymaking strategies.
Often Édith's emotions and her logic are out of sync with one another. What Édith Piaf 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. Édith Piaf 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 Édith Piaf 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 Édith Piaf 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 Piaf.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Édith Piaf often finds it hard not to speak out.
She speaks clearly, decisively, and convincingly and thoroughly enjoys a vigorous discussion or debate. Édith Piaf would be an effective lawyer or public speaker, a salesman of ideas. Others tend to listen to Piaf and follow her lead, and she has a talent for directing people and making decisions. Édith Piaf also has an aptitude for writing - especially criticism or satire.
Édith Piaf has very strong opinions and may be considered fanatical, extreme, dogmatic or one-sided in her views. Forcing her "truth" onto other people, playing intellectual power games with them or seeking to manipulate their thinking processes could lead to a great deal of conflict and opposition in her life and relationships. She may also be keenly aware of the ways in which the media, popular artists and advertising manipulate and shape our thoughts, for Édith can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances. Édith Piaf has an intense way of communicating, and she may unintentionally come across as a threatening force.
