mental interests and abilities
Nia has the ability to concentrate and become completely immersed in her work. Nia Long seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than through books or lectures. Nia has mechanical ability and works well with her hands. Long could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry or anything that involves manual creativity. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests her as well. Nia Long also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that she relates better to them than to people! Nia Long tends to become narrowly focused on her own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside of that particular field.
Nia has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Nia Long is the perpetual student who will be involved in higher education, philosophy or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing or communication are also areas of interest to Long. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
She is a natural psychologist or counselor, interested in the inner motivations, feelings, personal life, relationships and problems of others. Long is a sympathetic listener and she also loves to (endlessly!) discuss her own experiences and feelings. Nia Long 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 meaningful to them. Nia Long 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 Nia Long is drawn to.
She enjoys philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract ideas and concepts. Long 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. Nia Long has a great respect and thirst for knowledge and education, and is the proverbial "perpetual student". Nia Long also has a talent for teaching and sharing her knowledge, and as a teacher, Nia 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. Nia Long 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. Nia Long should leave the details to someone else. Travel or long-distance contacts and communication will play a major role in her life and work.
She has an innate understanding of relationships and a positive attitude toward marriage, family and children. Nia Long may have young parents or possibly become a parent at a young age herself. Relationships in her home are likely to be harmonious.
Nia Long has a tendency to dwell upon her basic ego needs and wants to plan everything out before acting. Others may see Nia as being all thought and no action, but the plans Long makes are more likely to be in keeping with her real inner desires.
