mental interests and abilities
She is more of a poet than a rational scientist, for her mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art or poetry comes naturally to Rosie O'Donnell, and she is also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating her thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for O'Donnell at times she may consequently appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of Rosie O'Donnell as a child, and she probably daydreamed a good deal as well. She is intuitive and able to sense the thoughts and feelings of others even before they say anything to her. Rosie often forms an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and her impressions are usually correct. O'Donnell can be somewhat absent-minded and she becomes so immersed in her own thoughts that she overlooks things in her immediate, tangible environment. Rosie O'Donnell is extremely open-minded and believes that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to Rosie O'Donnell as anything in the concrete world. Her imagination and sympathetic understanding of other people are two of her greatest gifts.
Rosie has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Rosie O'Donnell is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest O'Donnell. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Rosie O'Donnell has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and she loves a vigorous discussion or debate. She expresses her thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. Rosie dislikes vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and is quick to point out the discrepancies in another person's argument. At times O'Donnell is verbally aggressive and abrasive toward others, and she tends to overstate her case or offend people with her unadorned frankness. Rosie O'Donnell can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer or salesman. She has an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. O'Donnell enjoys mental challenges and mental work.
Even though O'Donnell 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: Rosie could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Rosie O'Donnell may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of O'Donnell's thinking.
She is open and receptive to subjects that defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy and metaphysics, and O'Donnell could teach these subjects to others. Her mind is imaginative and inspired and Rosie O'Donnell has an aptitude for art and creative writing.
Rosie O'Donnell has very strong opinions and may be considered fanatical, extreme, dogmatic or one-sided in her views. Forcing her "truth" onto other people, playing intellectual power games with them or seeking to manipulate their thinking processes could lead to a great deal of conflict and opposition in her life and relationships. She may also be keenly aware of the ways in which the media, popular artists and advertising manipulate and shape our thoughts, for Rosie can easily see through hypocrisy, shams and superficial appearances. Rosie O'Donnell has an intense way of communicating, and she may unintentionally come across as a threatening force.
