mental interests and abilities
Paula has an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. She is quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once her curiosity has been satisfied. Paula likes to taste a little bit of everything - concentration and disciplined study are not her strong points. Mentally restless, she may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel and variety.
Paula Abdul has a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. She also enjoys meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and works well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism or public relations are good areas for Abdul. Her ability to be articulate and communicate well is one of her greatest strengths.
The mysterious and the unknown fascinate Paula Abdul and she may investigate the supernatural or something that is hidden or taboo. Abdul needs to know what is going on behind the scenes. She is also deeply curious about or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.
Paula Abdul 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, Abdul's optimism and grand vision can also get her into trouble. Paula Abdul 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 Abdul's, especially if there is a mind-expanding or educational aspect involved, and Paula Abdul may travel extensively in her work. Consulting or education would be ideal fields for her.
Although broadminded and interested in the philosophical or long-range implications of any plan (as mentioned earlier), Abdul'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 Paula Abdul may seesaw between her optimism and sense of broader possibilities, and her skepticism and need for facts and tangible proof.
Paula Abdul possesses excellent powers of concentration and enjoys studying or deep thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, Abdul gets right down to the bare bones in any discussion and is quick to see the fuzzy thinking or weaknesses in another's logic. She is well-suited to any work that requires organized thinking, precision and a methodical approach. She enjoys working on problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive or technical. Paula Abdul tends to become a specialist in a given field of knowledge and to become engrossed in all of the small details involved, sometimes unaware that only few people share her particular interest, especially to the extent that she does.
Although Paula Abdul's thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Abdul 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 Paula Abdul, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Paula 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. Paula Abdul 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.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Paula is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Paula Abdul has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and Paula Abdul 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. Abdul is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
