mental interests and abilities
Her mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and Saundra Santiago dislikes being rushed or forced into give an opinion before she has thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. She is also difficult to sway once her mind is made up.
Though slower at grasping new concepts or learning new skills, she is patient and persevering and in fact, often becomes quite adept at whatever she sets her mind to for she is willing to devote much time and attention to it. Saundra Santiago succeeds, not so much because of her intellectual brilliance, but because she has the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. Saundra has an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Saundra does not speak up readily, even when she has a lot to say! Also, her mind tends to drift and Santiago finds it difficult to absorb very factual material that does not have much color or imaginative appeal. Her intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and Saundra Santiago tends to depend upon this faculty when making decisions.
Saundra's emotions and logic are often out of sync. What Saundra Santiago feels or subconsciously wants or believes is quite different from her conscious thoughts. Thus she may have trouble becoming clear about a given situation or making up her mind. Saundra Santiago functions best when she takes the time to reflect, brood and incubate her ideas and decisions, thereby utilizing her intuition and emotions as well as her reasoning. If Saundra Santiago studies her dreams and their messages she will be surprised to discover how often her true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from her conscious stance.

However, finding an outlet through writing about or describing her feelings would be very gratifying for Santiago.
Although she is perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), Saundra Santiago is also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Santiago combines the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Saundra has an introverted frame of mind and tends to dissect or deeply analyze her own inner life and experiences as well as those of others.
Saundra Santiago has a deep, serious side to her and when out of balance, she tends to be pessimistic, cynical and overly rigid or judgmental in this thinking. These are tendencies Santiago may have to work on counteracting, by choosing to focus on the humor in a situation, associating with cheerful, positive-minded people, and so on. Being around children can sometimes alter and lighten her mental outlook considerably. Duty, obligation, "should", and "ought to" may color Saundra's thinking too much.
