Exene Cervenka has high expectations and a profound belief that mankind's problems can be solved through the use of man's creative intelligence and inventive mind. Exene has no patience for those whose conservative, unimaginative outlook limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better future.

Practically speaking, Exene Cervenka has an aptitude for organization and enjoys being involved in cooperative endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
Exene has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Exene Cervenka 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 Cervenka. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Exene Cervenka often seesaws between what her conscious reasoning tells her versus a belief in things which seem to defy logic. Exene has a penchant for thinking big and being able to visualize the future, but she must beware of grandiose schemes and exaggerated claims. Oftentimes the most "far out" theories or speculative ideas seem perfectly plausible to Exene Cervenka, but it would be wise to test these ideas before Exene invests too much into them.
Also, Exene Cervenka is prone to severe wanderlust at times, so she should try to see as much of the world as she can.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Cervenka's mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Exene Cervenka may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Exene Cervenka has a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical, or dry. She could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are her forte. In speech Exene Cervenka tends to be factual and to the point.
Cervenka will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Exene Cervenka'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! Exene Cervenka incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Exene Cervenka has a brilliant, inventive mind, and Cervenka's sudden flashes of insight and clear perception enable her to grasp concepts very quickly. At times Cervenka's mind flits from one subject to the next so rapidly that Exene Cervenka cannot thoroughly digest any of them. Exene 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 Exene Cervenka likes to be open to inspiration and spontaneous. Cervenka could invent or discover something truly original, unique or unheard of.
Although Exene Cervenka's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Cervenka 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 is highly imaginative and creative and she possesses dramatic, artistic or musical abilities. As a child, Exene Cervenka enjoyed daydreaming, fantasizing and pretending, and probably lived in "her own little world" a good deal. She perceives things that are not obvious to other people and Exene Cervenka has an uncanny ability to "read" people and situations without being told anything about them. However, Exene Cervenka must learn to discriminate between true psychic perception and her imagination. Learning to discipline and focus her mind is necessary if Cervenka wishes to use all of her creative potential. Otherwise, Exene Cervenka could be simply a dreamer.
Communication with others is difficult for Exene Cervenka because she often finds words frustrating and inadequate to express her experiences and perceptions. Also, Exene may purposefully mystify or deceive others.
Exene Cervenka has a probing, penetrating mind and in her view, nothing is as simple, innocent, or straightforward as it appears. She may not totally understand the hidden undercurrents she perceives, the secret machinations, the dark underside of a person or situation - but it intrigues Exene and sometimes she cannot stop thinking about it. Once Cervenka's interest has been piqued, she can become obsessed with getting to the bottom of the matter. At times Exene Cervenka makes more of something than is actually the case, like assigning dark, convoluted motives to a person where none exist.
Her thinking is influenced by the way Exene Cervenka feels about love and she tends to speak freely about love relationships and sexual matters. A very good articulator, Cervenka has the ability to play with words and could do well as a writer of love stories.
Exene Cervenka has a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tends to discuss love relationships problems with them. Exene seems to be especially drawn to children and young people and is always welcomed and appreciated by them.
