Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to Estée. She is empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for she is a sensitive listener and deeply interested in people's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, Estée Lauder is drawn to education, art, poetry, music or mythology. She is not particularly confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share her thoughts in small, intimate groups. Lauder enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Estée Lauder thinks a great deal about her career, her reputation and public image, and the way she makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Estée Lauder does.

Estée Lauder has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to her careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Estée Lauder has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Lauder can get entirely wrapped up in her own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. She is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in her work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, she may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. She prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Estée Lauder may also be distrustful or fearful of anything she cannot understand with her rational mind.

Lauder will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Estée Lauder's thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines her mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Estée Lauder incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Estée Lauder has a brilliant, inventive mind, and Lauder's sudden flashes of insight and clear perception enable her to grasp concepts very quickly. At times Lauder's mind flits from one subject to the next so rapidly that Estée Lauder cannot thoroughly digest any of them. Estée gets bored and restless, and intellectually rebels against too much tedium. She may be abrupt and impatient with people who plan and plod along, because Estée Lauder likes to be open to inspiration and spontaneous. Lauder could invent or discover something truly original, unique or unheard of.
Although Estée Lauder's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Lauder can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Her mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and Estée Lauder is often unable to express her thoughts in simple, everyday language. Symbols, images, art or music better express Lauder's ideas. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry Estée into strange and beautiful worlds, and she could foster the ability to transcribe some of her perceptions so as to share them with others, for example, by writing fantasy, fiction, lyrics or poetry. Lauder is sensitive to nuances and possesses intuitive or psychic gifts, but she may become confused between imagination and true perception. Estée Lauder has a strong mystical and idealistic bent, and has difficulty focusing her attention on practical or mundane activities. Estée Lauder is strongly attracted to metaphysical and spiritual topics.
She is sensitive and compassionate in her dealings with other people. But Estée Lauder tends to get lost in her fantasies when it comes to love relationships; she is inclined to exaggerate her emotions and could easily be deceived or misled.
Her thoughts tend to go along artistic lines and she may very well pursue some kind of art as a hobby. In love relationships, Estée Lauder has a sympathetic understanding of her partner's desire for affection and she seems to be able to read their wishes from their viewpoint.
Although she may intend to cooperate or collaborate in her relationships with others, Estée Lauder is inclined to use them to serve her own ends. A bit impatient and aggressive, she may be over eager to gain the advantage.
