mental interests and abilities
Loretta Young 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. Young 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 Loretta to deal with details and particulars. Loretta Young has a gambling instinct and enjoys speculative enterprises and new ventures. Business, advertising and promotion would also be ideally suited to her.
She is often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and giving feedback, and sharing information. Loretta Young is drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom she can communicate and from whom she can learn. Loretta loves to have an audience to hear her ideas, and she also appreciates eloquent presentations by others.
Loretta Young 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. Loretta dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times Young is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and she tends to overstate her case or offend people with her unadorned frankness. Loretta Young can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. She has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. Young enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Young 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.Loretta Young has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Loretta Young also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Loretta 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. Loretta Young 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. Loretta Young 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), Young'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 Loretta Young may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Loretta Young has a deep, serious turn of mind, and when out of balance, she tends toward pessimism, cynicism, and overly rigid or judgmental thinking. These are tendencies Young may have to work to counteract, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten up her mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Loretta's thinking too much.
Even though Young 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: Loretta could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Loretta Young may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Young's thinking.
Although Loretta Young's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Young can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Loretta Young, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Loretta tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Loretta Young 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.
Loretta Young 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 Loretta can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances. Loretta Young has an intense way of communicating, and she may unintentionally come across as a threatening force.
Her sense of reality seems a bit distorted and Young tends to always think the worst. Her attitude toward the world is rather pessimistic and Loretta Young places too much importance on matters that really are not important and ignores the ones that are.
Loretta Young has a strong desire to dominate people's minds and would make an excellent hypnotist. Her own personal vibration seems to influence people and possibly could change their lives. It is important to use this power that Loretta Young seems to have for the general good.
