mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, she is always eager to express her ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Ellen has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, she is interested in another new idea or project. Ellen Barkin never seems to have enough time to do everything she wants. She is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things she believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if she honestly does not. She may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Ellen has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Ellen Barkin is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest Barkin. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Ellen Barkin has very little interest in or knack for the technical or mechanical. Barkin's forte lies in the human, personal side of life, people, psychology and life's inner workings. Ellen Barkin understands children and enjoys conversing with, counseling, listening to and learning about them. Barkin also needs a variety of social and intellectual experiences on a regular basis, and becomes restless, nervous, and irritable if she cannot get out and about. Barkin often needs to be mobile, to go for a walk or a drive, to regroup and to reestablish her emotional equilibrium. Ellen Barkin tends to dwell on the past, to ponder its significance, and at times, to long for it. Nostalgia and sentimentality substantially color Ellen's thinking.
Her desire to make a point sometime overrides her receptivity to others' views. She can be a good listener, but Ellen Barkin often finds it hard not to speak out.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Barkin tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Ellen Barkin 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. Ellen Barkin has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Ellen Barkin is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Barkin combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Ellen 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.
Ellen Barkin has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, she tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Barkin may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up her mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Ellen's thinking too much.
She is very sociable and has a talent for organizing and arranging associations or groups of people. Ellen Barkin is likely to have good cooperation between people and she proudly shares her successes with them.
