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 Lois Maxwell, 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 Maxwell at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Lois Maxwell 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. Lois often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Maxwell can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Lois Maxwell is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Lois Maxwell as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Lois Maxwell thinks a great deal about her career, her reputation and public image, and the way she makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or some other form of communication is likely to be an important aspect of Lois Maxwell's work.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Maxwell is interested in a broad perspective, universal principles and systems, and connecting relationships and patterns - namely, she prefers to see the whole picture rather than the sum total of its components. Lois Maxwell has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Lois Maxwell also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Lois presents herself as a fellow participant in the ongoing quest for understanding rather than as a figure of authority.
She may become involved in television, publishing or other fields that involve sharing ideas with large groups of people. Lois Maxwell excels in areas that require long-range planning and foresight, and can therefore be very successful in business, but she is rather sloppy and haphazard when it comes to implementing her ideas concretely. Lois Maxwell should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Maxwell's mind is clear and practical as well. Her wide-ranging ideas and interests are grounded by a sense of realism and order. At times Lois Maxwell may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Lois Maxwell has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to her careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Lois Maxwell has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Maxwell can get entirely wrapped up in her own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. She is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in her work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, she may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. She prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Lois Maxwell may also be distrustful or fearful of anything she cannot understand with her rational mind. She is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
There seems to be a nervous unrest about Lois Maxwell and she tends to speak to others with great enthusiasm. Always knowledgeable about the newest information, she appears to be well read. Her discussions with other people are likely to be very exciting.
