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 Elizabeth Taylor, 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 Taylor at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Elizabeth Taylor 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. Elizabeth often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Taylor can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Elizabeth Taylor is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Elizabeth Taylor as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Inquisitive and communicative, Elizabeth's mind seems to be "on" all of the time and she is forever gathering information and sharing ideas. Her attention span may be rather brief; Taylor has many and diverse interests, and is easily distracted. Taylor learns quickly, is eager to pass on what she is learning and thinking about, and may talk excessively.
Elizabeth Taylor has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and she loves a vigorous discussion or debate. She expresses her thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. Elizabeth dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Taylor is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and she tends to overstate her case or offend people with her unadorned frankness. Elizabeth Taylor can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. She has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Taylor enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
Even though Taylor 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: Elizabeth could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Elizabeth Taylor may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Taylor's thinking.
Her mind is intuitive, imaginative, colorful and strongly influenced by imagery or fantasy. Taylor sees the world with the eyes of an artist or a poet, and the hard sciences, as well as fields of endeavor based on concrete facts, rules or rigorous logic, are not Taylor's forte. At times she is able to perceive things that other people cannot - e.g. the "aura" of a place or a person - while at others, Elizabeth Taylor apparently does not see and/or overlooks things that are blatantly obvious to others. One problem Elizabeth Taylor is prone to is that she projects her fantasies, wishes and dreams onto other people or external circumstances and simply fails to see what is actually at stake.
Her thinking is somewhat sober and Taylor visualizes everything with complete reality. Elizabeth Taylor tends to be a late bloomer and could be a bit narrow-minded or selfish in matters of love relationships. Elizabeth Taylor seems to have a certain fear of being left out in some way.
Elizabeth Taylor has a great deal of nervous energy and she is likely to feel a strong sense of uneasiness. Others can expect to be hit back hard when they provoke her. Taylor is able to make changes if necessary, but in general she is somewhat reluctant to take chances.
