Janis does not speak up readily, even when she has a lot to say! Also, her mind tends to drift and Joplin finds it difficult to study very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. Her intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Janis Joplin tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
Often Janis' emotions and her logic are out of sync with one another. What Janis Joplin feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from her conscious thoughts. Thus she may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up her mind. Janis Joplin functions best when she takes time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Janis Joplin studies her dreams and their messages she will be surprised to discover how often her true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from her conscious stance.

Discriminating and highly rational, Joplin gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion and is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. She is well-suited to any work that requires organized thinking, precision and a methodical approach. She enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive or technical.

Janis Joplin has very strong opinions and may be considered fanatical, extreme, dogmatic or one-sided in her views. Forcing her "truth" onto other people, playing intellectual power games with them or seeking to manipulate their thinking processes could lead to a great deal of conflict and opposition in her life and relationships. She may also be keenly aware of the ways in which the media, popular artists and advertising manipulate and shape our thoughts, for Janis can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances.
