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 Glenn Close, 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 Close at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Glenn Close 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. Glenn often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Close can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Glenn Close is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Glenn Close as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
The mysterious and the unknown fascinate Glenn Close and she may investigate the supernatural, the hidden or the taboo. Close needs to know what is going on behind the scenes. She is also deeply curious or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.
Glenn Close 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. Glenn dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Close is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and she tends to overstate her case or offend people with her unadorned frankness. Glenn Close can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. She has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Close enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
Even though Close 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: Glenn could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Glenn Close may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Close's thinking.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Glenn Close, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Glenn also tends to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any true relevance or validity. Glenn Close should try to critically test out her ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character she respects, to use as a sounding board.
Glenn Close 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 undercurrents she perceives, the secret machinations, the dark underside of a person or situation - but she is intrigued by them and Glenn sometimes cannot stop thinking about them. Once Close's interest has been piqued, she can become obsessed with getting to the bottom of the matter. At times Glenn Close makes more of something than is actually the case, like assigning dark, convoluted motives to a person where none exist.
She may have to deal with considerable nervous tension and is inclined to see everything a little cloudy. Expressing what is on her mind could be hard for Glenn Close, and she could either intentionally or inadvertently deceive others, or vice versa.
