mental interests and abilities
Indira Gandhi possesses vision and foresight, and her mind is often occupied with big ideas, plans and goals for the future. She is interested in what is possible and what is on the horizon, rather than what has already been done. Gandhi is attracted to the study of philosophy, religion, politics or education and she is more concerned with theories and concepts than with specific applications. She is not inclined to focus on any specific, concrete area; It irks Indira to deal with details and particulars. Indira Gandhi has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to her.
Indira has an introspective turn of mind and may enjoy keeping a journal or a record of her dreams and personal experiences, or learning about psychology, history, and the inner workings and emotional foundations of her own life.Gandhi is studious and something of a bookworm.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Gandhi tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Indira Gandhi 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. Indira Gandhi has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Indira Gandhi has a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or - at the very least - mental stimulation. Intellectually, Gandhi likes to cover a lot of ground, see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. Indira Gandhi naturally seeks to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical application of her theories or insights are not really Gandhi's concern. Her "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of universal law, religion, philosophy or other primarily abstract and conceptual fields appeal to Gandhi. She is ideally suited for broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people and teaching. When she is enthusiastic about an idea, it is very hard for Indira Gandhi to keep it to herself. She has a bit of the evangelist in her.
Even though Gandhi 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: Indira could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Indira Gandhi may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Gandhi's thinking.
She is open and receptive to subjects that defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy and metaphysics, and Gandhi could teach these subjects to others. Her mind is imaginative and inspired and Indira Gandhi has an aptitude for art and creative writing.
Indira Gandhi 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 Indira and sometimes she cannot stop thinking about it. Once Gandhi's interest has been piqued, she can become obsessed with getting to the bottom of the matter. At times Indira Gandhi makes more of something than is actually the case, like assigning dark, convoluted motives to a person where none exist.
