mental interests and abilities
One of Nico's greatest assets is her ability to see both sides of an issue, and to negotiate and bring about compromise and reconciliation. Tactful, reasonable, and endowed with considerable social finesse, Nico works well with people in business as well as in personal relationships. She is objective and somewhat detached from emotional bias, and makes an excellent consultant, mediator or public relations person. Nico insists on fairness and seeks to foster harmony or at least peaceful coexistence between people. Her sense of diplomacy is an asset to any business or social setting. Nico also has fine aesthetic sensitivities and could work in an artistic or cultural environment.
Nico 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 Nico's work.
She is not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to spark Nico's interest. Her interests revolve around people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives and experiences. Nico is a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, relationships, dreams and desires - namely the things that are meaningful to them. Nico could also be an excellent writer, reporter or biographer.
Nico has a particular interest in the past. She is concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
Nico is nostalgic and she loves to hear others' life stories and to discuss her own experiences and feelings. Nico likes to read biographies and memoirs, and she probably keeps a diary or journal herself. Nico also has the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Nico has an ongoing interest in learning and expanding her mental horizons. She enjoys traveling, philosophical discussions and exchanging ideas with those who have different experiences and viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, she is well-suited to law, consulting, diplomatic relations, as well as business. Nico learns quickly, and can pick up on a new idea or concept with relative ease.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Nico is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Nico has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and Nico has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. She is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. She is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Nico is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
Her thinking is influenced by the way Nico feels about love and she tends to speak freely about love relationships and sexual matters. A very good articulator, Nico has the ability to play with words and could do well as a writer of love stories.
She is sensitive and compassionate in her dealings with other people. But Nico tends to get lost in her fantasies when it comes to love relationships; she is inclined to exaggerate her emotions and could easily be deceived or misled.
