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 Lori Black, 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 Lori Black at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Lori Black 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. Lorax often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. Lori Black can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Lori Black is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Lori Black as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Lori Black enjoys puzzles and other games that challenge her intellectually. Lori Black likes to show off her verbal or intellectual skills and to use her mind creatively. Writing, dramatic speaking or some other manifestation of her creative intelligence appeal to her.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Lori Black tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Lori Black 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. Lori Black has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Lori Black has an abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, and may find it difficult to focus on any single area. She is not a specialist for she seeks a broad overview; she wants a glance of the whole picture rather than a close scrutiny of its components. Philosophy, religion or other areas of theoretical speculation interest her.
She also possesses foresight, numerous enterprising ideas and a gambling instinct - all of which contribute to her success in the business world. However, Lori Black's optimism and grand vision can also get her into trouble. Lori Black sometimes promises more than she can deliver, glosses over important details that come back to haunt her later, and overestimates the potential of an idea or product.
Traveling is a great love of Lori Black's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Lori Black may travel extensively in her work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for her.
Even though Lori Black 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: Lorax could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Lori Black may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Lori Black's thinking.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Lori Black, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Lorax also tends to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any true relevance or validity. Lori Black 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.
Lori Black 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 undercurrents she perceives, the secret machinations, the dark underside of a person or situation - but she is intrigued by them and Lorax sometimes cannot stop thinking about them. Once Lori Black's interest has been piqued, she can become obsessed with getting to the bottom of the matter.
