mental interests and abilities
She is an exacting perfectionist with a clear, logical, analytical mind and an aptitude for work that requires meticulous attention to detail and efficient organization. Well grounded and pragmatic, Farmer tends to develop specialized skills and technical expertise in a practical field. Knowledge, ideas and theories do not really interest Frances Farmer unless they are useful in a tangible way. She is inclined to analyze, measure, and dissect everything and to miss nuances and subtle shades of feeling and meaning in the process. Her strengths lie in her precise thinking, careful craftsmanship and mastery of technical skills. Frances Farmer tends to be very good at what she does and critical of others' work if it does not meet her high standards.
She is quite verbal and communicative and eager to get her own ideas and opinions across to others. Frances Farmer says what is on her mind. Others see Farmer as a lively, intelligent person, and perhaps somewhat of a chatterbox at times.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Farmer tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Frances Farmer 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. Frances Farmer has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Even though Farmer 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: Frances could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Frances Farmer may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Farmer's thinking.
Imaginative, intuitive, and nonlinear in her thinking, Frances Farmer has a gift for writing poetry, fiction, or fantasy. Frances also has a natural openness to the spiritual, intangible side of life and could write or speak on these subjects. She could also foster an innate clairvoyant tendency in herself quite easily.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Frances is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Frances Farmer has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and Frances Farmer has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. She is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. She is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Farmer is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
She is somewhat restless and in constant search for variety and change. Cautious in one way and optimistic in another, Frances Farmer frequently changes her mind and her philosophy of life. She may prefer mental work and is likely to choose a scientific field.
