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 is natural to Laura Dern, 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 Dern at times and consequently she may appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Laura Dern as a child, and she probably daydreamed a good deal also. She is intuitive and is able to sense what others' thoughts and feelings are, even before they say anything to her. Laura often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Dern can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Laura Dern is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Laura Dern as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Laura does not speak up readily, even when she has a lot to say! Also, her mind tends to drift and Dern 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 Laura Dern tends to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.
She is a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, relationships, and problems of others. Dern is a sympathetic listener and she also loves to discuss (endlessly!) her own experiences and feelings. Laura Dern tends to be very personal and subjective in her point of view. She has a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires, and other things that are personally meaningful to them. Laura Dern could be an excellent interviewer, reporter, or biographer. Idle talk and gossip are her vices.
The study of the past - history, archeology, genealogy, etc. - is of great interest to her. Psychology, symbolism, mythology, and languages are also areas that Laura Dern is drawn to.
Laura Dern appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. She could develop considerable technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Dern could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Laura has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and tends to ameliorate relationships between people. Her sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are of great benefit to Laura Dern in any work with people on a one-to-one level.
She is adaptable and very social and loves to entertain. Because of her charm and outgoing personality, Laura Dern draws others to her. Laura has an innate nurturing instinct and she loves to take care of others. But Dern also knows what appeals to the public and could be a good salesman.
