Even though she is imaginative and emotional (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she also has a very sharp, quick mind, as discussed below. Phylicia Rashad thinks and reasons - as well as feels and empathizes - with both her heart and her head to make her way in life.
Phylicia Rashad is, in many ways, an eternal child. Her mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and her attention span is often quite brief. Rashad grasps ideas quickly and once her initial curiosity has been satisfied, she is ready to move on. Phylicia Rashad craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Phylicia Rashad to decide just where her talents and true vocation lie, for she has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting herself by concentrating on just one. She is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Her curiosity and restlessness propel Phylicia toward many different experiences in life, and she is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something she does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Rashad.
Phylicia Rashad lives in her head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and she needs mental stimulation every bit as much as she needs food and drink. In fact, if Phylicia had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, she would very likely choose the former. Phylicia Rashad has a creative mind and she often lives by her wits.
She is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. She enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting her ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas she has talent for.
Phylicia Rashad also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though she craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Phylicia Rashad to achieve it, for she is frequently unwilling to commit herself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit her personal freedom and mobility.
Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Phylicia has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Her faults are her lack of constancy and persistence, and her tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
She is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Phylicia Rashad prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Rashad invests a lot of her creative energy into her home, family relationships, and inner life.
Phylicia Rashad aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what she is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be her faults. Generally, however, Rashad's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Phylicia.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, she identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Phylicia Rashad insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Phylicia needs a lifestyle that allows her to be spontaneous. She often feels that she is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
Phylicia Rashad tends to impose her will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand she may also be imposed upon by others. Phylicia feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
