mental interests and abilities
Outspoken and direct, she is always eager to express her ideas and opinions and does not mind opposing the consensus and stirring up a little controversy. Paula has fresh, original ideas and a great deal of enthusiasm for anything new and untried, but once the novelty has worn off, she is interested in another new idea or project. Paula Yates never seems to have enough time to do everything she wants. She is very honest, speaks decisively and convincingly about things she believes in, and is unable to pretend to agree with someone if she honestly does not. She may be somewhat lacking in tact.
Paula has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom, and for an increasingly broad understanding of life. Paula Yates 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 Yates. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Yates tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Paula Yates 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. Paula Yates has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Paula Yates has an aptitude for solving difficult mental problems due to her careful, methodical approach, attention to detail and tenacity in following a matter through to its conclusion. Paula Yates has well-honed powers of concentration and enjoys studying and thinking in solitude. Yates can get entirely wrapped up in her own thoughts and completely engrossed in a minor detail. She is slow and cautious, but extremely thorough in her work. Conservative and somewhat of a skeptic, she may be narrow-minded or closed to any idea that has no concrete proof or scientific verification. She prefers dealing with facts rather than abstract speculation. Paula Yates may also be distrustful or fearful of anything she cannot understand with her rational mind. She is well-suited to work in research or any field that requires careful study and thought.
Even though Yates 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: Paula could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Paula Yates may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Yates' thinking.
Although Paula Yates' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Yates 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 Yates, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Paula 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. Paula Yates 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.
Paula Yates seems to have a sense of hopelessness and she feels that everything she does is blocked or opposed by others. Paula Yates tends to under-estimate and belittles herself and is inclined to get lost in details. She may find it difficult to concentrate.
Paula has an abundance of thoughts and many ideas to expand her horizon. Always receptive to new ideas, Paula Yates tends to acquire considerable knowledge. New vistas of understanding may appeal to Yates, and she may get involved in groups that teach these ideas.
